On November 6th, we will recognize the immense importance and work of election administration teams, poll workers, and more across the nation.
They deserve our gratitude.
Election workers and volunteers have a tough job. These critical members of our communities work hard to ensure that voters will be able to cast their ballots safely and successfully in 2023 - often working upwards of 20 hour days to make this election possible. Whether a first-time volunteer at a polling location, or a long-time election worker - our community says thank you to our election heroes.
