Poll Worker Additional Information

In each Primary and General Election, there are approximately 900 precincts in the state and each and every one of them need election workers!
  • Are you “people oriented” and enjoy serving the public?
  • Are you available to attend a training class prior to Election Day?
  • Are you available to work long hours on Election Day?

Fill out the form on this page or contact your County Clerk for more information if you are interested in becoming a polling place worker. There is a training class held before each election and poll workers are paid for their time. The Secretary of State encourages students (16 years and older) to serve as poll-workers to become familiar with the election process.

A ballot marking device for the visually impaired, the elderly and persons with disabilities is available at every polling place in compliance with the Help America Vote Act. If you have computer skills you can greatly assist your neighbors who may have difficulty seeing or marking a ballot on election day.


All poll workers assist in setting up the polling place in the morning and assist in cleaning up at the end of the day. The following is a list of various poll worker positions at a “typical” polling place. The polling place in your county may combine some of the functions and not have all of the positions listed.

  • Chief Judge of Election – The Chief Judge is the principal greeter, demonstrator and troubleshooter. The Chief Judge assigns positions and swears in other election board members.
  • Registration Clerk – The Registration Clerk is in charge of Election Day Registration. An elector can register on Election Day with proof of residence and photo ID.
  • Poll Book Clerk – The Poll Book Clerk checks the name and address of each elector, adds election day registrations to the Poll Book, and reconciles the Election Record and Poll Book at the end of election day.
  • Issuing Clerk – The Issuing Clerk is in charge of stamping and issuing ballots.
  • Receiving Clerk – The Receiving Clerk is in charge of receiving, recording and depositing the voted ballots.
  • Tally Clerk – In paper ballot counties the Tally Clerks are responsible for tallying the vote. There are four Tally Clerks. One clerk reads the voted ballots, one clerk watches and makes certain the ballots are read correctly and two clerks record the tally.
