Today the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections {FSASE) commended the Florida Senate for recognizing the commitment of Election Day Officials- more commonly referred to as Poll Workers- from across the state. Senate Resolution 1296, which was published Thursday in the Journal of the Senate, commends the thousands of individuals who work during early voting and on Election Day for their outstanding service and dedication to the democratic process in their communities.

Florida\'s Supervisors of Elections entrust a diverse cadre of Election Day Officials to administer the activities at polling locations and early voting locations in local, state, and federal elections from Pensacola to Fernandina Beach to Key West, and all points in between. Poll Workers commit to attend in-depth training sessions, in which they learn policies and procedures and operations of voting equipment, all to ensure fair and accurate elections for their fellow citizens. They then put that training into practice on Election Day for upwards of 14 hours or more in polling places all across the state.

Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley presented the idea to Senator Mike Fasano, who represents portions of Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. Fasano introduced Senate Resolution 1296 in December and shepherded it through the chamber.
