A poll worker is a volunteer who works at a poll site on Election Day. You will help with poll site set up, welcome voters and guide them through the voting process, and assist with the closing of the polls at the end of the night. All volunteers who work at the polls are known as Election Officers.

  • Clerk: You will help voters at your precinct table.
  • Inspector: You will be team leader for your precinct table.
  • Supervisor/Inspector: You will be team leader for one or two precincts.
  • Site Supervisor: You will work at a site with a few precincts and will work with other team leaders to make sure the job is getting done. Site Supervisors are experienced poll workers who have worked multiple elections.
