I was raised to believe that working at the polls was my civic duty. As long as I am able, I want to help people exercise their right to have their voice heard. Besides, it's fun.
I work at the polls to experience the real world outside my daily routine. It is like a vacation, doing something different, interesting, and fun.
You keep in touch with your neighbors and have a feeling of satisfaction that you are doing something worthwhile to help your neighborhood. There is joy in being part of something of value.
