Program promotes youth workers for November election
LINCOLN – Nebraska youth ages 14 to 18 are encouraged to participate as election workers for the Nov. 6 general election.
The Youth Election Service (YES), sponsored by Secretary of State John Gale and the Nebraska Bankers Association, is designed to increase interest and involvement in the election system among young people.
“We believe that YES is a valuable program that allows young people to serve our democracy, learn about the election system and provide important community service,” Gale said.
Participants are eligible to take part in drawings for 20 $50 savings bonds, which will be provided by the Nebraska Bankers Association. The drawings will be open to participants who worked in the May primary election or who work in the November general election, provided they performed a minimum of four hours of service.
In addition, all YES participants will receive a certificate of recognition from Gale.
Youths interested in serving as paid workers or volunteers for the November election should contact their county election offices as soon as possible.
For more information about the program, call (402) 471-6044.
