Elections are able to happen because of poll officials helping run polling locations across the nation. Poll officials are a vital part of elections in Tennessee. Poll officials conduct a variety of tasks to help polling sites run smoothly, including greeting voters, answering questions, processing voters, explaining how to cast a ballot, and counting votes.
