ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — The novel coronavirus health crisis has created a larger need for poll workers come November.

Benton County Election Coordinator Kim Dennison said on any typical election year, they usually call for about 350 volunteers. This year, 450 people will be needed to help run the polling sites because of the many COVID-19 changes.

“They could possibly be checking in, standing at the door, handing out a stylist and a ballot as they [voters] come in, doing crowd control, helping to maintain social distancing within the polling sites … we’ve got people cleaning all day long,” said Dennison.

Many older volunteers pulled out because of COVID-19 concerns. She’s hoping the younger generations will step up and volunteer.

If you would like to fill out an application, please do so at the link located here.

Return your application to the Election Commission office located at 2109 W. Walnut in Rogers or email the completed document to Kimberly.Dennison@BentonCountyAR.Gov. If you have any questions, please call 479-271-1049.
