GEORGIA NEEDS YOU!

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 will again cast their ballots in the general election. In order to prevent a recurrence of similar voting obstacles, the ACLU of Georgia has been working to recruit and prepare qualified poll workers and aims to be a source of information for all poll workers preparing for Election Day.
