Not old enough to vote, but old enough to help: How teens are helping to avert an election crisis (USA Today)

USA Today: Not old enough to vote, but old enough to help: How teens are helping to avert an election crisis. “Facing a drastic shortage of poll workers in November because of the coronavirus pandemic, an army of voting rights groups and other organizations this summer waged the most robust poll-worker recruitment campaign in modern election history. It has included high-profile allies, from Noah to NBA star LeBron James, whose recently formed More Than a Vote organization has worked to increase poll workers in predominantly Black districts. Companies like Old Navy, Warby Parker and Target are paying their employees who take a day off to work the polls.”
