From CA SOS, this 2006 document may be California focused, but provides a touch-base for other states thinking about the responsibilities and training to provide for pollworkers.
This quote provides interesting food for thought:
"Training must repeatedly reinforce the predictability of properly running machines. If
there is anything unusual happening, workers should immediately log the problem and
call the county elections office. Poll workers must be trained to understand that their
primary job is to witness the accuracy of the process; if they question something, they must record it and obtain official direction in how to proceed or resolve it.
