Dependable, concerned, capable men and women to serve as election day workers!
Who is a poll worker?
A poll worker is a registered voter that is recommended to the Board of Elections and wants to be considered as a worker at one of the many precincts in the County.
Do I need to declare my politics?
Yes. Each precinct has an equal number of Democratic and Republican workers. If you do not know your political affiliation we can advise you.
Will I work in my own precinct?
Sometimes. When we use a substitute worker, that person needs to be willing and able to go to any precinct at the last minute when we get a vacancy.
Will I be trained?
Yes. All new workers are trained before being sent out to work. Then every 3 years you are re-trained (unless the Secretary of State orders all workers trained for a certain election). You will also get $10 per hour for attending a training class.
How much is a worker paid?
The current amount paid for any election day Judge (worker) is $105.00.
How long do you work?
You must report to the polling site where you are assigned by 5:00 a.m. on Election Day. The polls close at 7:30 p.m., but you must continue to work until all closing procedures are completed.
