With three months to go until Election Day, America is facing a critical shortage of poll workers, the linchpin of our voting process, all of whom need to be signed up and trained in time for November. We’re proud to announce a new partnership with Power the Polls, a multi-faceted, multi-organizational effort to encourage Americans to help fill the gap in time for November. The future of our democracy – and our communities – is at stake this November and you can be part of the solution.

While many organizations, including the League of Women Voters, have been working around the clock to ensure voters are prepared and understand the many changes they may face in the voting process this year, concern is growing that our Election Day workforce – often understaffed and under-resourced even in a ‘normal’ year – will be in deep peril this November.
