Site Captain HQ – 2023 Poll Greeting
Poll greeters provide the last chance for voters to get good information and have a positive experience before entering the polling station. Thank you so much for volunteering to assist with this very important task.
Site Captain responsibilities:
Retrieve poll greeting kits and make them available to the set-up volunteers
Communicate with poll greeting volunteers before their shifts
Be available to volunteers during their shift in case of emergencies
Contact volunteers before their shifts, ideally a week out and one or two days
Provide volunteers with the phone numbers of the volunteers greeting immediately before or after their shift so that they can contact them in an emergency. Alternatively, encourage volunteers to put their phone numbers in the public comment field so other volunteers can see it.
