Registering To Vote

A friend from high school worked at the polls and had very encouraging things to say about the experience.

My job was to register people to vote. After completing a thorough training, both online and in person, my first assignment was in the September primary, where we registered over 100 people to vote, and I had the chance to learn the process in real time. I was acutely aware of how important it was for me to get this right, and to do well by each potential voter. When preparing to work this same job in the general election on Nov. 8, I had been cautioned that the volume would be much higher, and that there may be disruptions at the polls. Though we did have observers and challengers, for the most part they followed the rules set forth for these roles, and it was mostly just busy. All. Day. Long.

Y'all need to move to NH.  I'm just sayin'.

I began working as an election judge here in Jefferson County Kentucky this spring. We do just fine, too.
