Poll Greeters

We still need Poll Greeters to fill  slots for both the general election and the early voting locations.

And we need lots of rovers. Rovers are trained poll watchers that are on standby in case one of the assigned watchers cannot make his/her watch.

We are now organizing poll greeters and getting them assigned to poll locations and times. We need your help! Contact Linda Hill by phone at 352-239-9322 or email at queringhill@gmail.com to sign up.

Q: What does a poll greeter do?

A: Poll greeters do the following:

  • Pleasantly greet voters, staying at least 150 feet from polling location entrance
  • Provide informational items on the Democratic candidates and amendments and our recommendations on these to voters

Q: What should you bring to the polls?

A:  Bring your own chair, drinks, umbrella, small table, and/or whatever you think you’ll need. You will be outside, so plan accordingly.

Q: Where/when are poll greeters needed?

A: We need greeters at the early voting locations October 19–31 and at the high priority polls on election day, November 3, for 2-hour shifts. You can choose the length of time you want to spend being a greeter as long as it is at least 2 hours. And you can choose any two consecutive hour portions of the 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. early voting day and the election day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. you want.
