Become an Election Worker to Protect Democracy!
Election workers are democracy’s Most Valuable Players. Democracy is a team sport and every Election Day thousands of Michigan citizens come together to assist voters and process ballots.
Very large numbers of citizens are expected to vote by mail and at polling locations, in part due to absentee ballot availability for all registered voters and eligibility for same day voter registration. One of the best ways to help today is by signing up to serve as an election worker on Election Day to assist voters and count ballots. Election workers are the front lines and guardians of democracy.
With increasingly brazen attacks on democracy and elections, election workers are pivotal to the success and integrity of these upcoming elections. 2022 is the first election under the new maps that were drawn by Michigan’s groundbreaking Independent Redistricting Commission, so there is no question about how historic this year’s election is. The new district maps have made Michigan ground zero for state legislative races in 2022.
