This Year I'm An Election Worker - Come Vote Today
I've been a poll watcher and last year I spent a fair amount of time following up Anchorage's screwed up election. This year I decided to see things from the inside - I'm working as a poll worker.
I picked up a copy of the elections handbook and read it carefully.
There's a list of all the things you're supposed to have - though there are other things listed in the Manual - like an election binder - that isn't on this list.
There are about five troubleshooting pages.
I met with the chair of the precinct and another poll worker Monday night to set things up. We'll see how it goes. I'm not expecting a high turnout for this non-mayoral election, though the Assembly races will make a significant long term difference. We could increase the mayor's majority or we could get a more liberal majority.
So, be sure to vote.
