  • Election Officers

    Election Officers typically serve only on Election Day (once or twice most years) and receive a stipend for the day. Serving at a poll provides a look at the inner workings of elections and an opportunity to connect with the community. Election Officers are trained to set up the polling place, assist voters and maintain ballot security and voting equipment. Newer Election Officers are placed on teams with experienced volunteers. In an election, two different Election Officers positions are available at each polling place:

    • Clerk
    • Inspector


  • Election Night Workers

    Election Night Workers assist with ballot counting on Election Night in the following roles:

    • Runners,
    • Unloaders,
    • Traffic controllers,

    • Ballot scanners


  • Election Officers and Election Night Workers are always needed for upcoming elections. Visit the links below for more information and applications for these positions.
