We’re talking two different jobs here. The election worker is hired and paid (a nominal sum) by the govermental unit to process the people voting at the precinct level and others (depending on the voting system) will be at the municipal office verifying the ballot box count and voter book from the precinct. Political parties assign observers to precincts and City Hall to see if an individual voter should be challenged or to protest how the election procedures were followed by the precinct and HQ election workers. Our original poster was talking about a party observer (unpaid) job.

No he wasn't. Read the first part of his post and his response to me.

The latter job you described (the party observer) would seem to me to be a coveted job, but also one where the party needs to know the person can be trusted by the party/campaign. Thus I can see why (this woman's distasteful, poopy attitude aside) there is more of a vetting process and 'dues paid' prior to doing this job.

I guess I am of the mind that if I want to assist someone I show up and ask how can I be of service? I go where they need me, not where I decide to go. However what they ask me to do I filter through my other obligations and then decide if i can do what they have asked me to do.

I see being of service as being there to assist where I am needed, whatever that may be.

This woman is clearly a poor and offensive communicator and would best serve elsewhere though. They need someone else there in her role that is a positive and encouraging communicator that also knows how to set limits.
