Poll Volunteer Information

“We the people”. The first three words of the United States Constitution do more than introduce that document— they set the foundation for our republic. Without our active participation, nothing can happen. While voting, informing ourselves of the issues and candidates is vital.

There are many other ways to participate in the electoral process.

  • Sign up to be a poll worker
    • This is not a volunteer position. County election offices pay poll workers either an hourly or daily rate
    • The need for poll workers has increased with the addition of same-day voter registration
    • Poll workers are trained to ensure voting is smooth and efficient. They also receive training on how to handle any problems that may arise
    • Without an adequate number of poll workers, voting takes longer and delays could result in voters not voting
  • Volunteer with a campaign or political party
    • Campaigns are the heart of any election, so volunteering for the candidate of your choice can be fulfilling and educational
