Election Worker Information

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 step towards becoming an election worker is calling the Elections office at (772) 226-4700. You must attend an orientation class. During orientation, you will learn what being an election worker entail. After orientation, you will be added to our list of potential workers, and we will contact you when we have availability for an upcoming election. 

Election Workers receive a stipend for attending training (not orientation) and for working during early voting and/or Election Day.

Right to Work

If you have the skills, experience, and legal right to work, your citizenship or immigration status shouldn’t get in the way. Neither should the place you were born or another aspect of your national origin. A part of U.S. immigration laws protects legally-authorized workers from discrimination based on their citizenship status and national origin. You can read this law at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b. The Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) may be able to help if an employer treats you unfairly in violation of this law. The law that IER enforces is 8 U.S.C. § 1324b. The regulations for this law are at 28 C.F.R. Part 44. Call IER if an employer: Does not hire you or fires you because of your national origin or citizenship status (this may violate a part of the law at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(1)) Treats you unfairly while checking your right to work in the U.S., including while completing the Form I-9 or using E-Verify (this may violate the law at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(1) or (a)(6)) Retaliates against you because you are speaking up for your right to work as protected by this law (the law prohibits retaliation at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(5)) The law can be complicated. Call IER to get more information on protections from discrimination based on citizenship status and national origin.
