Poll Worker Training
Per Florida Statute, poll workers are required to train prior to each election. Training is typically offered over several days and in multiple locations (including Saturdays) to best accommodate poll worker schedules. Training is also dependent on the needs of each election(s). Please see the requirements above regarding poll worker eligibility.
With several elections already on the Election Calendar, there are many opportunities to serve as a poll worker this year and beyond. Prospective or current poll workers can review our current poll worker manual for the most up-to-date training information regarding working at the polls:Back to Top
Poll Worker Pay
Poll workers are paid a stipend for their services based on position in accordance with the Poll Worker Payment Schedule. Important: in order to be paid for training, a poll worker must also perform their scheduled Election Day duties.Back to Top
Our Scheduling Section assigns poll workers to work within their home precinct, when possible. If the home precinct is full, a poll worker will typically be assigned to work in another nearby precinct.
Poll Workers assigned to work an election are encouraged to request a Vote by Mail Ballot and return the voted Vote by Mail Ballot to our office before Election Day.
All poll workers must be at their assigned polling place by 5:30 a.m. on Election Day. Polls are officially open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Poll workers are not permitted to leave their assigned polling place on Election Day.Back to Top
After Election Day
Once you have worked at the polls on Election Day, your poll worker record will remain active. You will not have to reapply to be a poll worker for future elections. Training, however, is mandatory for all poll workers prior to each election. To confirm that you are still active in our poll worker database, please call 305.499.8448 or email email@example.com.Back to Top
