How to Become a Poll Worker
Contact your county Supervisor of Elections about becoming a poll worker. A poll worker is required to attend at least 2 hours of training (at least 3 hours if holding a higher position) prior to each election that he or she is serving. A poll worker is paid. As a poll worker you must be a registered qualified elector of the county in which you are serving. You must also be able to read and write the English language. Bi-lingual speakers (especially those who speak Spanish) are encouraged to apply and serve.
Attention: For 2020 Federal Elections only, a recent executive order (EO 2020-149) provides additional incentives to Florida state employees to serve as poll workers on Election Day, including but not limited to, administrative leave for up to 10 hours for training preceding the election. Please reach out to your HR Department for details. Then contact your Supervisor of Elections in your county of residence for how to serve.
