Poll worker

Today, I did a seven-hour shift as a poll worker in Revere, Massachusetts for the national election. I was “tabulation inspector,” which essentially meant I staffed a voting machine and helped voters feed their ballots into the machines. I also processed mail-in ballots through the machine when voters weren’t using it.

I was on my feet the whole time, so it was exhausting. But it was really rewarding helping people vote. Everyone is enthusiastic about being part of the election and very understanding when there were hiccups or delays. I was particularly excited when people told me they were voting for the first time.
