WOONSOCKET BOARD OF CANVASSERS AND REGISTRATION ANNOUNCES JANUARY 25th AS NATIONAL POLL WORKER RECRUITEMENT DAY

Woonsocket, RI: The Board of Canvassers and Registration would like to announce their participation in National Poll Worker Recruitment Day.

 

National Poll Worker Recruitment Day is a national awareness day established by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to encourage people to help America vote by serving as poll workers.

 

By encouraging more people to become poll workers in their communities, National Poll Worker Recruitment Day aims to address shortage of poll workers, strengthen our democracy, inspire greater civic engagement and volunteerism, and help ensure free and fair elections.

 

Michael Narducci Manager of the Board of Canvassers stated "Poll workers are critical to the success of an election. Having an adequate number of poll workers to staff polling places on Election Day can ensure voters receive the assistance they need at the polls and can help provide a positive and smooth voting experience for all." "By signing up to be a poll worker, you can Help America Vote." Narducci added.

Citizen, an app that notifies users about crimes and emergencies in their area, is rolling out a new service that will call 911 for those who need help. It will set users back about 20-dollars.       Guests at the upcoming Met Gala in New York must show proof they're fully vaccinated against COVID and wear masks.
