Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking about something a bit different -- our experiences as poll workers. Yes, Lee and Alison both worked at a polling station in the last election! It's a unique experience, and one you might even be interested in trying out. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why it's important to get involved in the election process in your community
  • How does the sign up and training process work?
  • Insights on what Election Day looks like in San Francisco
  • Why this stuff is actually really hard to get right
  • Do you get paid to be a poll worker?
  • What Alison and Lee found worked well, and what improvements could be made to the process
