Discusion of issues related to working elections
The purpose of this community is for poll workers to post their experiences working at the polls. Things like:
  • What went right?
  • What went wrong?
  • What did you like about working the polls?
  • What didn't you like about working at the polls
  • This little trick save me a bunch of work/time, I wanted to share it.
  • Problems you experienced with voting machines (personal experience only, please).
This is not a community to discuss:
  • Why electronic voting machines are stealing the vote.
  • Candidates or any political issue.
I'm sure these lists will grow as things move on.

I'm hoping that this community will help improve elections. I see this happening in several ways. First poll workers will be able to share their experiences and learn from each others mistakes. Second, I would like to use this community to create a feedback loop that will convey actual experiences back to the official in charge of elections (County Chief Elections Officer). Finally, I hope this community will help encourage more young and technically savvy people to become poll workers.

Please consider everything you post to be publicly readable. I intend to restrict community membership to people that actually work the polls. Posting will be restrict to members. However non-members with have commenting rights. (Assuming I can find all the setting to achieve this.)
