Any registered Virginia voter who isn’t an elected official or an employee of an elected official is eligible to work the polls. You must be available all day — from about 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. or later.

Elections officers will receive training prior to Election Day, and will do such jobs as
set up voting equipment; check photo IDs and check names on the electronic poll book;
provide assistance and instructions in using the voting machines; tabulate the results at the close of the polls.

Election officers are paid $175 for working a full Election Day. Election officers must work at least one general election before being considered for an assistant chief election officer ($200) or chief election officer ($250). You can also volunteer your time instead of being paid.

For more information, Email [email protected] with your name, political party affiliation, home address, date of birth, telephone number and email address, or call 703-324-4735 (TTY 711), or fill out this online interest form.
