LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – In nine days the polls will be open in Alabama, and you can expect workers and inspectors to be trained. According to Limestone County Probate Judge Charles Woodroof there will be 240 poll workers county wide. There will also be at least one inspector at each polling location.
Workers are expected to know all of the amendments on the ballot. "We cover everything; like laws that have changed since the last election as it relates to the voter. We educate our inspectors and poll workers on the different ballot styles as it relates to the different races on the ballot," Judge Woodroof said.
Judge Woodroof says inspectors will get hands on training with voting machines as it relates to power outages, or jammed ballots.
He said he wants to remind voters to be patient at the polls, and his goal is to make the voting experience great.
"My hope and desire for anyone that votes in Limestone county wherever they are.; from the day they register to the day they cast their ballot it's a smooth transition", Judge Woodroof said.
