What is a Pollworker?

A pollworker is an essential component to every polling place location on Election Day. There are two different types of pollworkers: Inspectors and Clerks. While Inspectors serve as supervisors for the polling locations, Clerks assist with a variety of conventional tasks. Both are paid a stipend for their time. Polling place locations typically staff four to six pollworkers on Election Day.

Pollworker Eligibility

  • 18 years of age or older (unless participating in the Student Pollworker Program)

Pollworkers must be available between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. to set up the polls, provide assistance to voters and conduct poll closing procedures.
