Thank you for your interest in serving as a poll worker in the November 3, 2020, Consolidated General Election!

Each election, we recruit nearly 2,500 volunteers to assist voters at the polls. Poll workers receive training and materials to make sure they are confident and ready to help voters on Election Day. All poll workers arrive to their assigned polling place by 6 a.m. on Election Day and end their day after the polls close around 10 p.m. For their service, poll workers receive a stipend (up to $240).

We look forward to welcoming you to our poll worker team!
