How are workers chosen?

It is the responsibility of the central committee person to submit a list of workers for their precinct. These are the workers that are contacted first to work an election. Their "appointment" is good for one year and begins July 1st. If the "appointed" worker cannot work, we then contact any subs and / or those who have worked before.

The party affiliation of the Voting Location Manager for a precinct is determined by which party received the most votes in that precinct in the last gubernatorial election.
