An Election Day Tradition
As the sun rose over Centre County, Pa. on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, volunteers prepared for the arrival of voters on this chilly Election Day. Within the red brick walls of the Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, David Beyerle joked and chatted with the other election officials as the clock ticked towards 7 A.M. and the opening of the polls.
Inspired by his mother’s volunteering when he was a child, Beyerle has been volunteering for this precinct for seven or eight years.
He is an engineer with Penn State University by profession and loves volunteering twice a year for Election Day because of the group of locals that he teams up with and serves as they come in to vote.
