Be a hero for democracy: Volunteer to be a poll worker!
Poll workers are the backbone of our democracy. Every election, these officials assist voters who have questions, help to resolve issues at the polling place, and ensure that our elections remain secure and accurate.
The need for poll workers is greater than ever. With the 2022 primary and midterm elections beginning soon, Delaware will see dramatic changes in its election system through Same Day Registration, Early In-Person Voting, and Vote By Mail. these changes will be a tremendous benefit to all voters, but will require informed and proactive poll workers to help voters understand and navigate these changes.
This year, the votamos We Vote coalition is highlighting the need for bilingual poll workers to assist New American voters who may speak English as a second language. By placing bilingual poll workers in voting precincts, voters will feel more comfortable asking for assistance and will be more likely to successfully cast their ballot without a problem.
Who can serve as a poll worker?
- Must be a Delaware registered voter.
- Must attend a three hour training session prior to the election.
- Must be able to work the entire Election Day, from 6 a.m.-9:30 p.m. You must stay at the polling location all day.
