Earn Money and Make a Difference…
Serve as a Poll Worker on Election Day!

In addition to gaining first-hand experience with the tools of our democracy, poll workers can earn extra money for their valuable service on Election Day.

You can serve as a poll worker if you are:

  • A registered voter, or
  • A high school student who:
    • is a United States citizen;
    • is at least 16 years old at the time of service;
    • has a grade point average of at least 2.5; and
    • is in good standing at a public or private school.

Contact your county elections office, or call (800) 345-VOTE (8683), for more information on becoming a poll worker.

If you are a state government employee, you can take time off work, without losing pay, to serve as a poll worker if you provide adequate notice to your department and your supervisor approves the request.
