School’s back in session, as evidenced by the sudden surge in traffic on our roadways. And with the return of students to their schools comes the beginning of a new application period for democracyLIVE!, the San Mateo County student poll worker program.
Applications are available online at www.shapethefuture.org/democracylive or from high school government/history teachers. As a reminder, the program is open to any high school student that meets the following eligibility requirements:
1) at least 16 years old on Election Day;
2) a U.S. Citizen;
3) a high school or college student with 2.5 GPA or better;
4) a student or resident of San Mateo County
Students must receive written approval from their teachers and parents/guardians to participate in this program.
