Training Class for Election Day Poll Workers (shortage due to Hurricane Sandy)

The Mayor's Website has posted a need for poll workers for the Board of Elections, as there is a severe shortage of Poll workers now, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

If you are interested in participating, please see the details listed below and rsvp, and list which session you plan on attending. We will be looking for another opportunity as well where we can contribute time or resources to assist in the aftermath.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
