Poll Worker Recruitment 

  • Administering an election takes the cooperation of state and county officials, vendors and, most importantly, POLL WORKERS. Poll workers are responsible for opening and closing the polling place, checking in voters and helping voters with any issues that come up on election day. Each precinct needs at least 5 individuals to work the entire election day. Poll worker is a paid position and the amount ranges between $100 and $300 depending on the county.
  • Individuals may contact the County Clerk or political party executive committee if they are interested in becoming a poll worker.  County executive committees have until the 70th day before an election to nominate poll workers.
