Become a Poll Worker

Democracies depend on people electing their representative. But elections need regular people like you to ensure they work. County elections officials depend on reliable, dedicated teams of Poll Workers to make every Election Day run smoothly.  

Depending on where you live, you may be eligible for compensation (from $65 to $150). 

Visit pollworker.sos.ca.gov to complete the poll worker application. It only takes 2-3 minutes!

Student Poll Workers

Even high school students can be poll workers. High school students are allowed one excused absence per year to attend a civic or political event, such as poll working. You just need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident 
  • Be at least 16 years old on Election Day 
  • Attend a public or private high school 
  • Have at least 2.5 grade point average 
  • Get permission from parents and school
