Adopt a polling place
Share your day...and your pay
Wyandotte County community organizations can earn money for service projects and promote civic responsibility at the same time. Encourage your members who meet the qualifications for becoming an election worker to volunteer and donate their earnings to your organization. While we make every attempt to assign organization members to the same polling place, legal requirements for political party representation may prevent that from happening.
Becoming an election worker, even as a volunteer who intends to donate their earnings, carries with it the full responsibility to work according to the same standards required of all election workers. Volunteers must be at the polls continuously from 6 a.m. until about 8 p.m., or when released by the Supervising Judge. Workers must be able to work for 14 or more hours, be able to stand and be able to help set up tables, chairs, voting booths and other equipment.
This is a great way to serve your community and promote democracy in action.
