All poll workers are required to be trained prior to elections. The training is usually held a month prior to Election Day. Any poll worker not trained before an election is not eligible to work.

You must be a registered voter in Miami-Dade County and able to read and write English.

There are more than 5,000 poll workers in Miami-Dade County who are appointed by the Supervisor of Elections to ensure the conduct of fair and accurate elections.

On Election Day

The Elections Department tries to schedule all poll workers to work in their home precinct if possible. If your home precinct is full, you will be assigned to work in another nearby precinct.

Poll Workers working outside of their home precinct should request an Absentee Ballot and return the voted Absentee Ballot to our office before Election Day.

All poll workers must be at their assigned polling place at 5:30 a.m. on election morning. Polls are officially open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The day ends for Inspectors and the Deputy when all ballots have been accounted for and all materials have been packed away.

Poll workers are not permitted to leave their assigned polling place on Election Day, and are urged to vote during Early Voting or via Absentee Ballot.
