The San Francisco Department of Elections needs your help for the November 8, 2022 General Election.
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. Poll worker 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.
