Become a Poll Worker

Election administrators across the country rely on citizen poll workers to staff polling places and deliver other key services. Because more than half of all poll workers are over the age of 60 in most elections, coronavirus has made it difficult for election officials to recruit poll workers for special elections and primaries in 2020. We need new volunteers to have a successful and healthy election in November.

This election more than ever, we vitally need committed citizens to work on election day. Sign up to be a poll worker so Americans can vote safely.

National Poll Worker Recruitment Day is a day of action with the goal of encouraging potential poll workers to sign up to Help America Vote in 2020. Find more information on this day and how to sign up as a poll worker in your community at the EAC's page.

Power the Polls, a partner in the Healthy Elections Project, is working to recruit new poll workers who can staff in-person voting locations during early voting and on Election Day. Learn more about signing up at their website.
