Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
The Hillsborough County Elections Supervisor's office has followed the lead of other local counties (Pasco and sarasota) in creating an "Adopt a Precinct" program. It's a way for the SOE to recruit quality, trained and enthusiastic poll workers for election day.
Community organizations, PSTA's, clubs and other non-profits provide poll workers who work all or part of Election Day. In return the non-profit is paid for the volunteer service of the workers. We're joined by Craig Latimer and Peg Reese, staffers at the HCSOE who are looking for charities and other non-profits to get involved in this program.
