Poll Worker Resources

The Committee of Seventy partnered with Healthy Elections Project, The Voter Project, Fairmount Votes, and experienced poll workers to offer informational content in the lead up to the November 8th election. The Committee of Seventy is also a founding partner of the Pennsylvania Poll Worker Project and will be co-hosting supplemental information sessions for poll workers across Pennsylvania. Download the slide decks from each of the presentations and our Resources for Poll Workers toolkit below.
