What is a Voter Preparation Party?
It's an opportunity to discuss candidates and issues on your ballot with local friends and neighbors, to crowdsource information and work collaboratively to be an informed voter.
Many states are facing a shortage of poll workers for the upcoming election. Poll workers help voters check in, maintain physical distance in lines, understand their ballots, and cast their votes. They will also ensure a safe voting environment by wiping down machines and equipment.
An adequate number of election workers is essential to keeping our election safe and accessible.
