There is a pressing need for volunteers to help create ballot packets to be mailed out to absentee voters. The Board of Elections already has thousands of Absentee Ballot requests and not nearly enough staff to do the job. The shifts will be 9-12n or 1:30-4:30pm each weekday.

The task requires focus on detailed precise work – repetitive, time-consuming stuff, and incredibly important! Ideally, they’re looking for folks who can commit to certain shifts weekly but any help will be welcome. They are looking for help ASAP, as they will start creating the mailings today, with “packets in the mail” to begin September 4.  Interested volunteers should contact Kaylea Noce at 828-250-4216 or
