Become a volunteer poll driver or rides scheduler with Souls to the Polls WI! We are in need of 30 poll drivers and 15 schedulers for the upcoming election.

30 Volunteer Poll Drivers: Poll drivers provide voters in our community with free rides to the polls. Whether you have a few hours to spare or can commit to a full day, your contribution can significantly impact voter turnout and democracy.

15 Volunteer Schedulers: Volunteer schedulers work our Virtual Call Center and manage our hotline in order to coordinate free rides to the polls for callers who are requesting assistance. Great communication skills and the ability to multi-task are key for this role. This job is virtual and can be done in the comfort of your home.
