Georgia Attorneys: Serve as a Deputy Registrar!

SIGN UP TO BE AN ACLU OF GEORGIA POLL WORKER!

During the June 9 primary election, Georgia voters experienced long lines, extreme delays, equipment malfunctions, and other problems with in-person voting caused by a significant shortage of well-trained poll workers. Many Georgia poll workers dropped out due to pandemic-related concerns, and those that remained lacked hands-on training with Georgia’s newly implemented voting system technology. Procedural blind spots resulted in an improper use of provisional ballots, failure to legally cancel absentee ballots for in-person voters, and early closures of polling locations. 

Leading up to and on November 3, Georgia voters cast their ballots in the general election. In order to prevent a recurrence of similar voting obstacles, the ACLU of Georgia worked to recruit and prepare qualified poll workers and aimed to be a source of information for all poll workers preparing for Election Day. 

Continuing this commitment, we are now preparing poll workers for runoff elections in Georgia on December 1, 2020 and January 5, 2021. Poll workers in Georgia may use the resources below to prepare for working the polls during these runoff elections.
