Our excitement started to wane when we weren’t trained. We emailed multiple times to ask about training. We were repeatedly told we would be trained soon. Finally, on October 26, after we’d practically begged over email to be trained, the county set up classes. However, they made it very difficult for poll workers to attend. Classes were announced at the last minute or were only offered during the workday. Due to the inconvenient and inflexible timing of these classes, I was unable to make any of the in-person training sessions. Instead, I watched the county’s online training videos and thoroughly studied the training manuals.
