The U.S. Election Assistance Commission established National Poll Worker Recruitment Day to encourage potential poll workers to sign up and Help America Vote in 2020. The campaign aims to address the critical shortage of poll workers, strengthen democracy, inspire civic engagement and volunteerism, and help ensure free and fair elections this November and beyond.

In Iowa, Neapolitan Labs has worked with 12 County Auditors to build standalone election websites, and every site includes information on becoming a poll worker, or “precinct elected officials.” County Auditors run local elections and are responsible for hiring, training, and deploying these officials each Election Day. And the need for these officials is greater than ever, with many current poll workers in their 60s and 70s and thus in the high-risk population for COVID-19.

If you live in Iowa but outside of the counties listed above, the Secretary of State has built an Iowa Poll Workers website that includes an interactive form that can be completed and routed to the appropriate County Auditor.
