    Dear Election Official:

    The Lancaster County Board of Elections has decided, in light of current guidance regarding group meetings, that the in-person refresher poll worker training scheduled at the LCPSTC will be moved to an online video training. The refresher training agenda and Power Point can be found on our website under Election Information -> Poll Workers. https://www.co.lancaster.pa.us/302/Poll-Workers We will provide a link to the training video as soon as it is available.

    The new Judges and Inspector hands-on training scheduled for the morning of Saturday March 21st will also be online.

    If you have any questions or are unable to access the online video when it is posted, please feel free to contact April Wefler at 717-299-8298 or awefler@co.lancaster.pa.us.

    I apologize for any inconvenience this late notice may cause. We are working to create an environment of caution, not fear. We have placed both the CDC and Hart Intercivic polling place/equipment guidance in the below links as a resource for poll workers.

    We are working to make the video available for our poll workers.

    Please feel free to share this with the other members of your board who were planning to attend training, even if you yourself were not.
