Election Day Worker Training

Becoming a poll worker is one of the most significant ways to empower a community and ensure the democratic process runs smoothly. Forty-Seven of our High School students participated in a comprehensive training program designed to provide them with all the necessary knowledge and skills to play a vital role in upholding democracy. 

Throughout the training, organized by the Bergen County Board of Elections, they learned about the ins and outs of voting procedures, including how to confirm voter eligibility, issue ballots, and facilitate voter registration. The students also learned to handle ballots securely, ensuring they are counted accurately and efficiently. 

Through their participation in the training, they gained the skills and experience necessary to bring about positive change in their community. The newfound confidence they gained from this experience empowered them to make a lasting impact and shape the future of our nation.

In October 2023, 25 students from Teaneck High School became the first in Bergen County to participate in a special training program aimed at recruiting younger generations to work at polling stations during elections. Today, the program has been adopted by other districts in Bergen County. It's great to see these students leading the way in a movement that seeks to empower communities, uphold democracy, and positively impact society, one vote at a time.
