(NEWS10) —Sept. 1 is National Poll Worker Recruitment Day, as state and county Boards of Elections say there’s a huge need for poll workers ahead of Election Day.

Most who help out at local polling stations are volunteering, and about 55% are over 60. They’re at-risk for the coronavirus, and many are choosing to opt-out, creating a shortage.

New York’s Board of Elections needs replacement volunteers, and they’re encouraging younger people to sign up.
