An Elections Working Group Webinar: Who Are the Election Workers, and Why Should We Care?

February 27, 2024 @ 01:30:00 pm - February 27, 2024 @ 03:00:00 pm
Eastern Time (ET)

Elections occur continuously in the US, and local election workers are the bedrock of making these elections “work.” Yet, most of us know very little about who these essential local employees are and the complexity and challenges of their jobs. We have seen that when voters lose trust in these workers and their ability to execute elections fairly and in a nonpartisan manner, they lose confidence in the election results.

This event examined the professional election workforce, sharing what these "invisible" workers do and why they deserve our respect and support.
