Become a Poll Worker

Monday, August 14, 2023

Be an Election Worker! Election workers are essential to ensuring that elections are a success. With each election, millions of Americans dedicate themselves to sustaining the backbone of democracy - our election process. EAC encourages those interested in becoming election workers at the polls on election day to learn more about what is required and how to sign up to work with your local election official.

The Poll Worker Preparedness Checklist is designed to assist poll workers as they prepare for Election Day. The checklist can help poll workers feel ready for Election Day and make them feel more confident as they prepare to serve their community. 

Get started and find out if you are eligible. Go to the State Compendium of Election Worker Laws and Statutes.

  1. Find out if you must be a registered voter in the state.

  2. Find out if there is an age requirement.

  3. Find out if there is a residency requirement.

  4. Find out if a political party affiliation is required.

Then contact your local election office and sign up to be an Election Worker. They'd be happy to add you to the Election Day Team!
