From Michigan's Secretary of State:
Election workers are democracy’s Most Valuable Players.
Every Election Day, thousands of Michigan citizens come together to assist voters and process ballots.
This year, in both a statewide primary on Aug. 4 and the presidential election in November, very large numbers of citizens are expected to vote by mail and also at polling locations. One of the best ways you can help today is by signing up to serve as an election worker on Election Day to assist voters and count ballots. Election workers are the front lines of our democracy.
Even in the midst of a global pandemic, democracy will march on in August and November. Election workers are pivotal to the success of these upcoming elections and will adhere to health guidelines and best practices to keep all staff and voters safe.
