Last week we heard from three election officials in different parts of Idaho about how they’re dealing with an unusual year. Today, we’re continuing our conversations with the folks volunteering to make sure every vote counts during this pandemic election. “Idaho Matters” welcomes University of Idaho law students Danielle Strollo and Jeannette Moody. They are among about 80 law students who have stepped up to fill critical poll worker roles usually held by older folks, people who are more at risk of poor outcomes with COVID-19. Read and listen.
