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.
To become a pollworker in Los Angeles County, you must be:
- 18 years of age or older (unless participating in the Student Pollworker Program)
- A resident of California
- A United States citizen registered to vote or a legal permanent resident (green card holder)
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.
