It takes more than 2,000 poll workers to conduct an election. Although the Department of Elections has already recruited many poll workers, we are seeking to expand a pool of available workers for the 2012 election cycle.
Poll workers operate polling places on Election Day, and assist voters in every part of the voting process. They must attend a training class prior to the election, in which all duties are explained in detail.
Applicants must be United States citizens, age 18 or older, and registered to vote in California. All positions are one-day assignments and pay between $125- $170. Individuals interested in serving as poll workers may complete the on-line application at http://www.sfelections.org/pw/or call us at (415) 554-4395.
