Faith in Elections: Strengthening Civic Infrastructure for 2024

Faith in Elections Playbook leaders and grantees share strategies and address inquiries related to the recruitment of poll workers, serving as poll chaplains, and providing space for polling sites.

To instruct and inspire people of faith about the various ways to implement the Playbook nationwide, Interfaith America hosted a virtual gathering this past week that featured exceptional civic and faith leaders representing a diverse array of traditions. This interactive event instructed on recruiting poll workers, serving as a poll chaplain, and election de-escalation training, and offered best practices for utilizing religious spaces as a polling site to meet community needs.
