The 2024 presidential elections begin in less than a year and the Supervisor of Elections has already begun to recruit election workers to serve the community.

The office will host an election worker orientation session this September, October, and November. Space is limited, so the office is only seeking new election workers for these sessions.

Attendees will learn what being an election worker involves, including the responsibilities for each position (clerk, assistant clerk, deputy, etc.). Additionally, they will be provided with an overview of elections equipment.

How will these election workers be supervised to ensure that they are not pushing their particular agenda, whether it is Democrat or Republican. I have known three election workers who are rabid leftists, what’s to keep them from influencing the prospective (usually first time) voter? Who oversees them and that behavior?
