APPLY TO BE A POLL WORKER IN YOUR COMMUNITY

We are sharing this important opportunity to be a poll worker this election so that you can help ensure your community is able to vote! This is a major need in many counties in California and Nevada due to a shortage of poll workers.

Go to the Nevada and California pages for more information and to apply, and since each county manages their own poll workers, you can also view the links for each county below after "Actions you can take on your own time." In CA, this opportunity is also open to high school students!

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION - RESOURCES AND LINKS TO LEARN AND TAKE ACTION

 

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' DAY RESOURCES

Indigenous Peoples’ Day is on October 12th, and it's a holiday that honors people and tribes that are native to the North American continent, while rejecting  the overtones of racism and colonialism that are often associated with Columbus Day.

As we talk about voting, it’s important to highlight the fact that Indigenous people have been denied the right to vote throughout U.S. history. Although the Voting Rights Act of 1965 instituted stronger voting protections, the Indigenous vote is frequently suppressed to this day.
