Thank you for your interest in becoming a poll worker and a valued member of our Election Team. Becoming a poll worker is a very important decision that requires a serious commitment, dedication and the desire to be a public servant. A poll worker is a paid position that requires classroom training and disciplined home-study of the manuals that are provided to you. Not everyone is suited to be a poll worker mostly because, on Election Day, you must be at the polling place for a minimum of 14 hours (6:00 a.m. until you are released by your Clerk). This is a long day and something you must seriously consider before applying.
Also, a poll worker is required to: • To a registered voter of Indian River County; • Be able to read and write English; • Attend an orientation session; • Have reliable transportation; • Attend all mandatory training classes; • Pass written exams; • Be able to work at least 14-hours on Election Day; • Be able to sit or stand for long periods of time; • Be a responsible team-player; • Make a serious commitment if hired as a poll worker
