With just weeks until Election Day 2020, polling places across the state need your help.

PULASKI COUNTY, ARKANSAS, Ark. — During the coronavirus pandemic, it's important to know the facts around the national and local elections to stay safe and practice your right to vote.

But this year, there is a critical need for workers.

Not only will there be millions of absentee ballots to count, but most poll workers are over the age of 61, and won't be able to help because of health concerns.

As of Tuesday night, 200-300 more poll workers are needed in Pulaski County. One thousand workers are needed to have a safe and secure election.

Poll workers can get paid, or receive volunteer hours.
