There is a national poll worker shortage. This can lead to voter suppression, long lines, and low voter turnout.

Please consider signing up on the official Connecticut State website to be a volunteer poll worker on Election Day. A poll worker is the official responsible for overseeing voting stations.

  • NOTE: To be a poll worker in Connecticut, you must be registered to vote in CT. If you are not registered in CT, but would still like to volunteer, please reach out to Yale Votes.

Pledge to Engage

We’re calling on every professor and instructor to be a strong advocate for voter engagement and democratic participation. Take our Voter Friendly Faculty Member Pledge to get started! Also see our informational one-pager and comprehensive election season faculty toolkit

Curricular Integration

Part of being a Voter Friendly Professor is helping students understand why their vote matters. Research has shown that students who engage in political discussion both in and out of the classroom are more likely to participate in the democratic process, and there is no shortage of pressing issues to discuss. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help professors of every field integrate conversations about voting, policy, and democracy into their classes.
