For volunteer poll workers, this means making a commitment to attend a 2-hour training, actively listen to instructors, read and understand instructive materials, practice, practice, practice and work in concert with fellow volunteers on the day of the event. Poll Workers give their valuable time by working at community polling places on Election Day so their fellow citizens can exercise their voting rights.
