Implementation Workbook: Training and Certifying Election Officials
In a complicated field that can attract uncharitable attention from the public, a surprising number of election officials are self-taught, leaning on the experience of others in our offices. Somehow, it usually works, but there is wisdom in this quote from baseball great Vern Law, “Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.”
There is an easier, safer way. Give the lessons first. A comprehensive training program can teach new election officials what they need to know. Even experienced administrators will learn from the best practices of their colleagues.
This guide is designed to help you pull together a training and certification program for election officials and staff. Your state will benefit in a number of ways.
