Hernando County Supervisor of Elections’ Adopt A Precinct Program

soe logoShirley Anderson, Supervisor of Elections (SOE), has announced a new “Adopt-A-Precinct” initiative geared towards local service organizations who would like to raise additional funds while doing their civic duty and serving as a poll worker. Local clubs and organizations can utilize the “Adopt-A-Precinct” (AAP) program as a way to give back to the community through civic duty, while at the same time earning money for their organization’s causes. Club members will attend the mandatory trainings to become a poll worker and then staff a precinct on Election Day. They are paid the same wage as any citizen serving as a poll worker, but Adopt-A-Precinct participants have agreed in advance to donate their Election Day earnings to their designated organization. The SOE will present a check to the service organization following the election. This innovative program will help foster the community service spirit while helping the SOE fill the need for dedicated, service driven poll workers. The SOE office is excited to offer a program that has the potential of putting thousands of dollars back into the community in the form of charitable donations. If your group, organization, or church would be interested in learning more about the Adopt-APrecinct program call (352) 754-4125 or email elections@hernandocounty.us.
