Can you help serve our community as a poll worker in November?

Everyone knows the challenges we face in Richland County every election cycle. I continue to fix what I can and have again got another lift in an agreement from one of the Commissioners.

If you wish to volunteer to work a poll, that poll will be here in our community! PLEASE BE SURE TO LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU APPLY (READ ON AND CLICK, PRINT, SEND IN APPLICATION) SO THAT I CAN KEEP A LIST OF MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY THAT WANT TO HELP AND BE ASSIGNED CLOSE TO HOME.

    Nathan, as you know many of the poll workers are 60 and older and it is a very long day, particularly for presidential elections. It may help encourage more poll workers to come forward if the day can be split in half. Just a thought. Janet

    Is there some reason National Guard members cannot be called upon to be poll managers? Aren’t they on active duty two days a month?
    Is there some reason absentee ballots can’t be counted when they are received instead of waiting for Election Day?
    I voted by absentee in the primary and had to pay $1.20 at the post office. That’s 3 stamps and seems excessive especially for shut-ins, those without transportation and nursing home residents. Can something be done to rectify this?
