There is a coalition helping the City of Detroit recruit poll workers for the 2020 elections starting with the March 10 presidential primary. The city needs several poll workers for each of its 500+ precincts. In addition, hundreds of poll workers are needed to process absentee ballots on Election Day at the TCF Center (formerly known as Cobo Hall).
