CEs for Working the Election Polls in May 2022 or November 2022

Would you like to earn 4 hours of continuing education while serving fellow Ohioans?  The pandemic is still unfortunately impacting those who normally work the polls.  The CSWMFT Board is offering licensees the opportunity to earn four (4) hours of continuing education for serving as a Poll Worker/Precinct Election Official on Primary Election Day, Tuesday, May 3, 2022 OR Tuesday, November 8, 2022 General Election. For the calendar year 2022, CSWMFT licenses may only claim four(4) hours of continuing education credits.  These hours are in addition to any qualified hours earned during the November 2020 or November 2021 General elections. Licensees who worked the polls in either November 2020 or November 2021 may still claim those hours, provided 

To qualify for the four hours, CSWMFT licensees must complete the training offered by their county board of elections and work either Primary Election Day, Tuesday, May 3, 2022 or  Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Licensees who want to use the hours toward their continuing education requirements must upload to the CE Broker post-program approval portal a copy of their pay stub for the training and Primary/Election Day work.  A letter of confirmation from the board of elections may also be uploaded. 

Please note that only Primary/Election Day work hours completed under the direction of a county board of elections (e.g. Precinct Election Official) may be used to claim the four hours of continuing education. Other activities, whether partisan or non-partisan, for example acting as an election observer/poll watcher or driving persons to a polling place, do not qualify for CE.
