AP Government Students Working Polls on Election Day
Polls workers have trained 21 Advanced Placement Government students to work at the polls for the November 4, 2008, General Election. Jessica Russo, Lauren Bokovitz, Adam Highberger, Karen Kwong, Carlee Radcliff, Tom Dooner, Mike Collier, Bryant Brookover, Travis Fujikawa, Rebekah Bowers, Matt Flerchinger, Billy O‟Neal, Janiel Jaggers, Krista Shorf, Nicole Tomak, Cyrus Sethna, Greg Petsche, Victoria Sawczak, Kaitlyn Stewart, Jeff Crawford and Jenna Hedman all attended Polls Workers Training at Hudson Community Chapel on Tuesday, October 7, 2008. Nordonia students from the Class of 2008 worked the polls during the Primary Election last March and were such excellent polls workers that Summit County Board of Elections contacted Mrs. Mitchell to see if present seniors would be willing to work at the polls for the General Elec- tion. Two of the students have already been appointed Presiding Judge at the polling places where they are assigned. Being part of the electoral process is exciting and educational for the students and gives community members an opportunity to interact with high school students in a positive way. The students will be at the polling places from 5:30 a.m. until well after the polls close at 7:30 p.m. It will be a long day, but the students will be participating in de- mocracy and will be paid for their services. The Summit County Board of Elections officials and workers at the training session complemented the Nordonia students on their behavior, attentiveness and willingness to serve their community. The students will be assigned to polling places in northern Summit County for the November 4, 2008, General Election. If there are Nordonia sen- iors working at your polling place, say hello and wish them well. DON‟T FORGET TO GET OUT AND VOTE ON NOVEMBER 4.
