On October 5, 2020, at 12:45 P.M., I arrived at the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Main Office for my refresher course before Election Day. There were throngs of people in several lines. 

Some people were trying to turn in their mail-In-ballots.   Others were trying to register to vote. This made sense since it was the last day to register for the 2020 General Election.

A few of us were there to check-in for our training. We signed up and started at 1:40 P.M. (ten minutes late for the stragglers.)  We received new pages to insert into our manual for us to study over this month.  Besides that, there were little to no changes with the training, just a few that turned out to be positive. First, the instructor was able to use a microphone so everyone could hear more easily; second, there was more discussion time and everyone was able to ask questions; and third, there were a few more younger poll worker trainees during this lecture than the one back in the summer.
