Shirley Anderson, Supervisor of Elections (SOE), is proud to announce a new initiative entitled “Adopt-A-Precinct.” The program is geared towards local service organizations who would like to raise additional funds while doing their civic duty and serving as a poll worker.
Local clubs and organizations can utilize the “Adopt‐A‐Precinct” (AAP) program as a way to give back to the community through civic duty, while at the same time earning money for their organization’s causes. The Supervisor of Elections office provides training to become a poll worker. Club members will attend the mandatory trainings and then staff a precinct on Election Day. They are paid the same wage as any citizen serving as a poll worker, but Adopt‐A‐Precinct participants have agreed in advance to donate their Election Day earnings to their designated organization. The SOE will present a check to the service organization following the election.
“Innovative programs such as Adopt-A-Precinct will help foster the community service spirit while helping us fill the need for dedicated, service driven poll workers. I am excited to offer a program that has the potential of putting thousands of dollars back into the community as charitable donations. The group provides the people, we provide the training, and together we will Promote the Vote.”
