Voters come to the polls to vote for the candidate of their choice, but longtime volunteers come to the polls each year for more than just their love of politics.
Volunteers in Erie, Pennsylvania say that by recruiting younger people to volunteer at the polls it could ultimately encourage younger voters to register or come out and vote.
It's Election Day, where you'll see new voters, new candidates running, but many of the same, longtime poll volunteers.
That's why they post notices each election urging more people to come and volunteer at the polls.
They usually get 2 more new people on average a year, but they'd like to get more young volunteers, because that way more young people might be encouraged to vote.
Joan Pruzenski has been a volunteer here for 22 years, but what she appreciates the most is when younger voters have an opinion.
And for newer volunteer Micki Ferguson, she enjoys coming out each year and meeting new people.
Now again, they do get a few more volunteers per year, but these longtime volunteers make a point of being at the polls every time.
