Recruitment drive aims to find more election poll workers in Hidalgo County
Hidalgo County officials say they are hoping to hire at least 750 poll workers by September for the upcoming November election.
The large number of workers needed is due to the recent redistricting in the Rio Grande Valley that increased the number of polling locations in Hidalgo County from 74 to 86.
