Student Poll Worker Opportunitites

The Bay State is facing poll worker shortages, and many elections officials are overwhelmed. The Massachusetts Student Poll Worker Corps recruits and trains students to serve as poll workers this fall, connecting trained students to officials in real-time, and also growing a reserve who can jump in as shortages appear in the weeks and even days before an election.
