Volunteer to help ensure a safe, fair election

As coronavirus continues to impact Americans across the country, there has been a staggering decrease in the number of people who are able to work the polls – which could mean closed polling places and long delays during the November election.

The AFL-CIO is partnering with Power the Polls, a first-of-its-kind initiative to recruit poll workers to ensure a safe, fair election for all voters.

You can help us address the critical poll worker shortage and help make sure we have a safe, fair, efficient election for all voters – and potentially get paid to do it – by signing up at

Once you’ve signed up, depending on your jurisdiction, you will either be contacted by Power the Polls, a partner organization, or your local election administrators regarding your application.

The Power the Polls team will help you through the process. In the coming weeks, Power the Polls will host briefings to provide more information about the application process and what to expect when you become a poll worker.

You, your friends and family can sign up to be poll workers, helping to ensure a safe and fair election.
