Election Inspectors (poll workers) conduct assigned duties at a polling site on Election Day. Duties can include issuing ballots to registered voters, registering voters, monitoring the voting equipment, explaining how to mark the ballot or use the voting equipment or counting votes.
Poll workers are appointed to two-year terms so you will be asked to make a minimum two-year commitment. However, committing to one election cycle (Primary/General) is also appreciated.
To be an election inspector (poll worker), a person must:
- Be a qualified elector of the County in which the polling place is established (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the County for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote);
- Be able to speak, read, and write fluently in the English language;
- Have strong clerical skills;
- Be able to solve problems;
- Be an effective communicator; and
- Not be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.
