GAINESVILLE – Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter invites registered voters to be a part of this year’s historic elections by working the polls. Poll Workers are needed for both the Aug. 30 Primary Election and the Nov. 8 General Election.
Poll Workers are the guardians of democracy. These are paid positions and training is required.
If you are registered to vote, able to speak, read and write the English language; have transportation to the polling place and Poll Worker training; are not a candidate whose name appears on the ballot; and can work at the polling place from 6 a.m. until after the polls close at 7 p.m., then we need you!
The duties and responsibilities of a Poll Worker include verifying a voter’s identification, address, signature and issuing the correct ballot; conducting the election in accordance with the law; providing assistance to voters as needed; and setting up and packing all voting booths, signs, and supplies on election day.
If you are interested in serving as a Poll Worker, please call the Supervisor of Elections Office at 352-374-5252 or you may fill in the Poll Worker application on our website at www.VoteAlachua.com
