As an Election Worker, you are a defender of Democracy! Election Workers are civic-minded registered voters who are paid to work at Election Day polling places and Early Voting sites and are trained in voting procedures, equipment operation and customer service.
Becoming an Election Worker is an important decision that requires commitment, dedication, and the desire to be a public servant. The first steps towards becoming an election worker are submitting an application (printable PDF) and attending orientation. During orientation, you will learn what being an election worker entails. After orientation, you will be added to our list of active workers, and we will contact you regarding training dates prior to any upcoming elections.
Election Workers receive a stipend for attending training (not orientation) and for working during early voting and/or Election Day.
