98-year-old poll volunteer works Election Day in Wood County

PARKERSBURG W.Va (WTAP)- Election Day is one of the most civically important days of the year and one long-time poll volunteer understands just that.

98-year-old Louis Bogdan has been volunteering on Election Day for over 30 years total, and over 24 here in the Mid-Ohio Valley. He spent his life as an engineer and volunteering however he could.

He believes that, for as long as he is capable, it is his duty to help others on one of the most important days of the year.

“Election Day is very important because today you determine the future. I like to make sure that there’s a paved road in front of me rather than a dirt and lumbar road,” says Bogdan .

Despite the sometimes 17 hour day, Bogdan says he finds volunteering on Election Day to be rewarding.
