Training classes

Thank you for volunteering to help your community vote! Training classes will be held remotely this election, due to COVID-19. A packet of information will be mailed to all volunteers ahead of the training, with all of the information they need to assist voters on Election Day.

Training classes for the November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election are currently scheduled for:

  • Friday, October 23 – 9:00 am to 12:30 pm via Zoom meeting.
  • Friday, October 30 – 9:00 am to 12:30 pm via Zoom meeting.

All election volunteers will be required to attend one of these training sessions. If you are unable to attend in person, let us know and we will send you information on how to view the training class outside of the current scheduled times. Volunteers will also receive a separate link to take an online training specific to COVID-19.
