Unsung Election Heroes

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!

This concerns polling places but is a little off-thread. Does anyone know what restrictions, if any, apply to an elector bringing and referring to a piece of paper at the booth? Someone I know and trust told me a poll worker told him it was not allowed, and demanded it be put away while at the booth.
