Samuel Ellis, an undergraduate student in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, was featured in the article "Inside The Student-Run Voting Precinct At Georgia Tech," published Nov. 3, 2020 by WABE 90.1.
Ellis served in October and November as the poll manager for the voting location at McCamish Pavilion, which was one of few completely student-run polls in the country.
Ellis says he hopes working the polls will serve his fellow students well as they choose their career path after college.
“I hope that you’re going to take something away and put those skills to use that is not necessarily the typical career path of someone who wants to just make apps for the rest of their life or wants to be a really cool software developer,” said Ellis. “Poll technology is not the first thing they think of. Until they get stuck in a line on Election Day.”
