Power the Polls and Help as a Poll Worker

Poll Worker
As you may know, America is facing a record shortage of poll workers this year due to the COVID19 pandemic. Our democracy depends on people from all walks of life who engage in civic participation to make sure that our nation’s elections run smoothly and that the votes of all people are counted.

If you can help with the November election, visit Power the Polls to get details on how to apply and participate. Poll worker positions offer personal protective equipment, paid compensation, and training. If you are a social worker, you may also be able to serve as a poll worker for CEU credit as per the National Association of Social Workers (NASW)

Together, we will work to ensure a safe, accessible, and fair election. 

In Solidarity, 

Anthony Caldwell – Director of Public Affairs
SEIU District 1199 WV/KY/OH

CEU Credit Opportunity for Social Workers

Poll Worker

Social workers play a critical role in Ohio’s health care and social service system. With the current pandemic, there is an urgent need for additional poll workers. Social workers are now able to earn Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits through the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) if they serve as poll workers in November. 

A county elections board must fill out some basic paperwork, note if there are any breaks during the training to work at the polls, and provide an agenda to offer this benefit. We understand that elections boards for Tuscawaras County, Belmont County, Guernsey County, and Clark County, have already decided to participate. 

Ifeolu Claytor (ifeolu@allvotingislocal.org) with All Voting is Local is coordinating with the elections boards and National Association of Social Workers in this area. As a social worker, you can contact your local elections board and ask them to offer this benefit and forward details to Ifeolu Clayto. As more counties confirm this opportunity, details will also be forwarded by All Voting is Local to the NASW. 

Having a safe and fair election is very important. We will be sure to share additional details as they become available. 

In Solidarity, 

Joshua Norris – Executive Vice President
SEIU District 1199 WV/KY/OH

Pledge to Vote for Vice President Joe Biden and Unions for All

SEIU biden 2This November, we must elect a president who will fight for and alongside SEIU members and our families to ensure that we all have the right to join together in Unions, regardless of the color of our skin or where we were born. Vice President Joe Biden has a proven record of doing just that and has a plan that meets our Unions for All demands.

We Are Proud to Support Joe Biden Because He Will:

• Make it easier for working people to have a seat at the table through Unions, sign a $15 minimum wage bill, and hold corporations accountable.
• Lead a strong federal response to the coronavirus pandemic that prioritizes the needs of workers, families, and small businesses who are suffering the most, particularly communities of color.
• Ensure everyone has access to quality, affordable healthcare and long-term care. Joe Biden will help make sure healthcare jobs are good, Union jobs that are the backbone of the most inclusive middle class in this country’s history.
• Treat immigrants humanely and fairly to ensure they are welcome, safe and free in America, recognizing that their success is necessary for the country’s success.
• Take bold action to transform our economy and democracy so families of every race can thrive.
• Take immediate, bold action on climate change that creates millions of good Union jobs and holds corporations accountable for the rampant pollution that is often the worst in communities of color.

Vice President Joe Biden will be the kind of president who will bring working people and our communities together to unrig the rules that have kept us from succeeding. He will lead with empathy and care for what all of us need not just to survive, but to thrive. Together with Vice President Joe Biden, we will break down the systemic racism and exclusion that keeps working families from getting ahead.

Pledge your vote at this link for Vice President Joe Biden today to make sure working families come before corporations.
