Scholars Strategy Network highlights Glover, LaBouff research on poll workers

Scholars Strategy Network highlighted research by University of Maine faculty Rob Glover, associate professor of political science, and Jordan LaBouff, associate professor of psychology, to survey poll workers before and after the 2022 midterms. The study was funded through the Scholars Strategy Network’s Election Protection and Enhancement Program. “Poll workers are an integral part of Maine’s election system. The research that Dr. Glover, Dr. LaBouff and Dr. LeVan are conducting is giving us more information about the motivations that bring poll workers to serve in this capacity and what is effective in reaching them for recruitment. This will be extremely helpful to election officials as we work to ensure we have an adequate number of poll workers signed up to work at future elections,” Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows told Scholars Strategy Network.
