Election Commissioner Dave Shively put out a call Wednesday for Election Day board workers who could serve as substitutes to replace any appointed board worker unable to serve on May 12 or Nov. 3.

Since the average age of Election Day workers is in the vulnerable category to the coronavirus, Shively is looking for healthy, younger volunteers.

Election Day board workers get a training stipend and earn minimum wage on Election Day and have the same civil leave protection as those who serve jury duty.
