Though around 2,000 volunteers will be needed to make sure everything runs smoothly, only about 900 have so far been found. In his recent legislative update for Davis County residents, Representative Paul A. Neuenschwander (R-20) specifically petitioned local residents to volunteer some of their time at the capitol.
"It takes quite a number of people to act as guides and do other needed work," he said.
Each volunteer shift is a little more than three hours long, and will include work in a variety of areas including the Governor's Office, the State Reception Room, the Rotunda, and the Senate and House Chambers. Volunteers will re-ceive training after attending the practice dedication ceremony on Jan. 3.
