Worked as an election poll worker for the first time! It's a really interesting experience, one I recommend trying once (although maybe not in a major election for your first go 'round). You really appreciate what it takes to make an election work and it gives you a TON of insight into how people vote/human behavior. SO fascinating! Also exhausting. So, so unbelievably exhausting and I wasn't even in a contentious area! If you know a poll worker, buy them a coffee- they deserve it!
