American Bar Association Requests Law Students Serve as Poll Workers
Pepperdine Caruso Law students have the opportunity to serve as poll workers in the 2020 election. The ABA's "Poll Worker, Esq." initiative is sponsored with the National Association of Secretaries of State and the National Association of State Election Directors.
Poll workers help ensure free and fair elections, and law students as well as lawyers are especially suited to serve. With the added obstacle of a pandemic this year, finding people who are at lower risk to assist as poll workers is even more important. This is an opportunity for young lawyers and soon-to-be lawyers to step up and serve their communities.
Law students, lawyers, and others can visit www.canivote.org here and click on the "Become a Poll Worker" tab here to find out how to serve in their jurisdictions. Depending on the state, tasks may range from staffing polling places to processing returned ballot envelopes and more.
