Easy as 1-2-3 - Become an Election Hero

Becoming a poll worker is as easy as saying, simply contact your local county election official, typically your county auditor, to let them know you are interested in becoming a poll worker. Find your County Election Official.

1. Attend Training

Your election official will notify you of a training class to give you instructions on poll worker duties. Trainings are typically no more than two-hours. 

2. Set Up the Election

On the day of the election, you will help set-up the polling location you will work at before your friends and neighbors arrive to vote. 

3. Helping Voters

Once the polling location opens, you may help voters in a variety of ways: 

  • checking-in voters
  • handing out ballots
  • addressing questions
  • assisting with equipment

You will also help your fellow poll workers close down the polls at the end of the day.
