Help Wanted: Standby Poll Workers
Having enough people staff each polling location is critical to the overall success of the election, which is why we don't take any chances. We are now hiring stand-by poll workers to step up in the event someone cannot fulfill their Election Day assignment. Stand-by poll workers will receive a minimum stipend of $100 for being on call Monday and reporting on Tuesday.
Students Experience Voting for the First Time
More than 100 students from Cleveland Metropolitan School District attended early voting to cast their votes for the first time. This organized effort stemmed from the Second Annual Your Voice Matters Youth Summit which took place in September. Congratulations to these first-time voters!
National Voter Registration Day Collaboration Exceeds Goals
National Voter Registration Day was a huge success this year! This county-wide collaboration of more than 50 partners yielded more than 1,800 voter registrations for Cuyahoga County, far surpassing the goal of 1,000 registrations. This is the first time in seven years that the Cuyahoga County voter registration roles have exceeded 900,000 in a November Election.
