Poll Workers

Poll Workers are an important component of the elections process.  Poll Workers are the front-line representation of the Supervisor of Elections office.  Often, a voter may never see a Supervisor of Election staff member, but will see Poll Workers at their polling location on Election Day. 

Poll workers are hired or appointed by the Supervisor of Elections in each county. There are some differences from county to county. Most poll workers are paid volunteers. If you are interested in being a poll worker please contact your Local Supervisor of Elections office in your county for more information. Many have websites that you can visit for more information also.

Please find the following example of information concerning poll workers that can be found on the internet, courtesy of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website.
