Longtime political observers say there will be long lines at the polls November 2nd, a day that promises long hours on the job for poll workers. But through a program with the Greene County Clerks Office and SMSU, voters and election officials will get some help on election day. Mike Smith has the story:
Voters who show up at the wrong polling place in Green County will get some help from SMSU students. The University is sending more than 90 students to work as deputy registrars on November 2nd.
Greene County Clerk Richard Struckoff says the goal is to have at least 1 SMS student at each of Greene County's 86 polling places. The will be on hand to assist registered voters who may show up at the wron polling place. The students
work at the polls is in conjunction with the Help America Vote Act.
John Strong, Assistant to SMSU President John Keiser, says he's excited to see the large number of students interested in the program. "Overall", he says, "the project is a perfect fit to SMSU's statewide mission in Public Affairs".
