San Francisco Election Inspector: The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love

(Or, maybe it’s the The Toughest Job You’ll Never Love. Haven’t decided yet, actually.)

I’ll tell you, if you ever decide to work on a one-day gig as an Election Inspector for the City and County of San Francisco, they’ll be sure to give you a checklist of tasks that stretches a mile. But, I’ll tell you, The System Works.

If people take the effort to vote, San Francisco will make enormous efforts to see that those votes gets tabulated.

Anyway, that’s the lesson I learned after pulling a double shift (16 hours!) yesterday.

I don’t know if I’ll be available to ever, ever do this again, but you, well, get involved if you want.

    I did the job about a half dozen times over the years, but have given up because it takes about three days to recover from the sleep deprivation and the sheer exhaustion of trying to fill out every baroque form imaginable at 8PM when you’re not even seeing straight anymore. There’s got to be a better system.
