Many of those problems can be avoided if we recruit more, and better-trained poll workers to work at precincts on Election Day.
In an effort to help, the Metro Atlanta Chamber is encouraging employees at our member companies to serve as poll workers for this upcoming election. Employees at our member companies are among the brightest, most-dependable, best-trained and highly-motivated in the state. We will connect everyone who signs up to their county elections board for training and scheduling. And everyone who works gets paid.
“We are clear: Voting is a critical way to engage in the future of our region and nation — and every vote should be cast and counted. The issues we’re seeing reported in metro ATL and across the state are unacceptable and should be addressed swiftly by officials in our state. We encourage everyone waiting in long lines to stay the course, exercise your right to vote and share your concerns with your elected officials. And we will advocate for these issues to be resolved before November.”
This non-partisan effort is sponsored by the Metro Atlanta Chamber without any coordination with or support for any political campaign or political party.
