Franklin County Board of Elections Needs More Poll Workers

The special election is wreaking havoc on the election board

The Franklin County Board of Elections is gearing up for the August 8 special election. Poll workers are being trained and machines are being tested, all in preparation for the big day in less than a month.

"We are going to recruit, our goal, is 5,000 poll workers for those locations," said Aaron Sellers, public information officer for the Franklin County Board of Elections. "Once we get them signed up, a lot of them are past poll workers, but we do have some new poll workers joining us throughout the cycle."

The Board of Elections is trying new incentives to bring in more workers, including increasing pay by about $30 for training.
