EAC College Pollworker Grant Program announcement

I received the following information via email today from the EAC:

I wanted to bring to your attention our release today of the Election Assistance Commission’s Help America Vote College Pollworker Program. This program, quite successful in 2004, will build upon the successes and research of the EAC to encourage more students to ease the strain local election officials face on election day. This year, we will be encouraging our successful grant recipients to utilize a manual we are developing to further test how we recruit, train, manage and evaluate college pollworkers.
