Shout out to the unsung heroes of every election – the poll workers. Campaign volunteers who work on a candidate’s campaign are moved by dedication to an individual or the ideals they represent. Yet the people, often seniors, year after year dedicate weeks during early voting and long days on each election day to ensure the American right to vote is organized and accessible to all.
While we are stuck in our partisan ads, rhetoric, and stewing in our separate political corners, the poll workers show up and are assigned despite political affiliation. Without these folks, who usually greet impatient voters with a smile, the very foundation of America, our ability to vote, would fail.
Poll workers are an example of true American service.
We thank you!
