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
