What is a Poll Worker and How Do I Become One?


Poll Workers are essential to the Election Day process. These are the individuals a voter encounters at the precinct (polling places) on Election Day. They are there to assist the voter completing Voter Certificates, issuing Ballots, making sure the voter can cast their vote and have it count. Do you want to serve your community and earn some extra money? Are you tech savvy, tenacious, confident, enjoy working in teams and born to multitask, a stay at home parent, have free time, or retired? If you answered yes to any of these, then you just might be the person we are looking for!


We are currently taking applications to become a Poll Worker.




 When and Where can I vote?


Before every election US citizens which have registered to vote by the designated deadline have the opportunity to cast their vote prior to the Election date.  Avoid the lines you may encounter on Election Day and vote early!
