It's not so simple since poll working is physically demanding and
many would not be qualified. However, you could possibly achieve
the identical goal by simply allowing people selected for the jury
pool to opt out if they will serve as a poll worker. They would need
to declare themseleves fit to do so, but the self selection would
remove the problem of "forcing" people who were unfit.
