Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger Encourages Younger People to Apply as Poll Workers

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, along with Georgia State Rep. Dewayne Hill, Georgia State Sen. Jeff Mullis from Chickamauga and Catoosa County Commission Chairman Steven Henry, talked about local and state governments’ election response to the COVID-19 public health emergency via video chat Tuesday, April 21, 2020.

Raffensperger encouraged people 16 years old and older to work as paid poll workers.

“The average age of our poll workers is over 70 years old,” he said. “ If you feel like you are in a lower risk group, we really would encourage you to become a poll worker.”

Training for the position includes two to four hours of online instruction, according to Raffensperger.
