Become a Student Recruiter

Help recruit poll workers!

Help ensure a fair election in 2020! We need students like you to recruit poll workers. Each student recruiter will be asked to complete 33 hours of work and will receive a $500 stipend.

The opportunity for every American to vote in a free and fair election is at risk. Because of COVID-19, the older Americans who typically carry most of the burden of keeping our polling places open must stand down this year to protect their health. Unless younger Americans step up, the resulting shortage of poll workers could mean closed polling places and long delays in communities across the country.
