The San Francisco Department of Elections is collecting public interest to serve as poll workers in future elections.

The next confirmed election will be held on March 5, 2024.

Poll workers are vital to every effectively-run Election. You serve an important role in preserving our democratic process by assisting voters at the polls and protecting their right to cast a ballot. Poll workers receive training and materials to make sure they are well-prepared to perform their duties on Election Day. Responsibilities include setting up the polling place at 6:00AM sharp; checking in voters using a precinct roster and issuing the correct ballots; troubleshooting voter issues; accepting ballot drop-offs throughout the day; closing the polls and transferring custody of voting materials by 10pm. Upon completion of their Election Day assignment, poll workers receive a stipend of $225 to $295.
