Help America Vote Day was January 30 

To better assist state and local election officials with the recruitment of poll workers throughout 2024, Help America Vote Day is a day of action to raise awareness of the ongoing need for poll workers and opportunity to share voting information on how to register and cast a ballot.  

Thank you to the 23 state election offices, plus Guam and the District of Columbia, and the many local offices that participated on social media for making it a success!  

The EAC wants to make sure the lookup tool on includes updated information for local jurisdictions. Please visit this site to make sure the information for your jurisdiction is correct. If you have any updates, please email [email protected].   

Save the date for National Poll Worker Recruitment Day on August 1.
