REGIONAL—Iowa secretary of state Paul Pate is seeking Iowans who can assist voters at the polls on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Poll workers check-in voters, make sure they have the correct ballot, answer questions and help ensure elections run smoothly in each precinct.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many of Iowa’s regular poll workers are unavailable this year.

Masks, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, social distancing markers and other materials will be provided to every precinct to protect voters and poll workers from the risk of spreading COVID-19.
