Preparing for the polls | News
YORK COUNTY - In just about two weeks, voters will head to the polls and, while it's good to do a little research on the candidates before you cast a ballot, some people actually have to study for the Primary Elections.
The last Primary Election poll worker classes wrap up today. Poll Workers are the people you see at the booth taking your name and showing others how to use the machines and this is where they learn how to teach the voter.
Almost anyone can become a poll worker and new people must complete intensive training before beingable to work. Even longtime poll workers are required to take a class before each big election.
"We've not had a primary election since 2008, so we just like to brush up everyone's skills and refresh everyone before election day," said Beth Covington.
