Poll Worker, Esq.

Through its Standing Committee on Election Law, the American Bar Association is partnering with the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) to rally lawyers and law students to serve as poll workers in the upcoming 2020 election. 

Be a Poll Worker!

The Poll Worker, Esq. initiative encourages lawyers and law students to work to ensure the voting process is safe and efficient and that all eligible votes are counted.

Earn CLE for Your Service

To encourage lawyers to help fill the void, the states of Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, Kentucky and Nebraska are providing CLE credit for lawyers who train for service and who work the polls. If your state hasn’t taken this step, it is not too late to encourage your state’s accrediting agency to provide such an incentive!
