How do I become a poll worker?

Several months before every election we post the poll worker job application on the Athens-Clarke County jobs page,

Complete the online application and our office will contact you for a short phone interview. Poll workers are paid by the hour and required to attend paid training sessions. Typically, a poll worker will work 14 hours on an election day. There are also opportunities to work for up to three weeks prior to an election staffing one of our early voting locations. 

If you have great attention to detail, enjoy working with the public, and want to contribute to the community in a positive way, this job is for you. You must be at least 16 years old, live in Clarke County or one of the adjoining counties, and be able to speak, write, and read fluently in English.
