If you are interested in civil, community, city or state affairs, why not get involved, all states across the US need poll workers. It's easy to sit on the sidelines and criticize but why not get involved and learn about some of the issues and stakeholders in your community. I've been working with elections for the last 8 years, starting first as a worker and now as a Chief Inspector. This work will not make you rich but it feels great to work for democracy! Get Involved!
BONUS: I've also met great friends and worked on lots of special projects for my city.
