WHO 13 NEWS – As we get closer to Election Day, county auditors want Iowans to know it’s not too late to become a pollster.
These are the people who check voters and issue them ballots.
So far, Polk County has 725 surveyed workers. Warren County has more than 300 poll workers, but they want to make sure they have a bipartisan mix so it’s even at polling places.
“It’s important because you want to make sure the pollsters are nonpartisan, to make sure they can work together and to make sure there’s transparency,” said Allison Summerfield, elections officer for the Warren County Auditor’s Office.
Poll workers are paid for training and work on election day. To learn more, contact your county auditor or click here here.
