STUDENT POLL WORKER PROGRAM

Poll workers are the gate keepers of democracy and you can be part of the process. We have over 80 poll workers in Okeechobee County who work hard to ensure the conduct of fair and accurate elections. Students are an integral part of elections in our county.

 

Requirements

To be a poll worker, you must be registered or pre-registered to vote (16 years of age or older), be able to read and write English, participate in required training prior to election day, and work on election day from 6 a.m. until dismissed by the precinct clerk after election day duties are completed, typically a 14-hour day. Student poll workers must also maintain a positive attitude, exhibit professional behavior and remain non-partisan at all times while working and training. 

Student poll workers are paid $12/hour for completing training and working a full election day.  Prior to each election a statement of approval form will be sent to your school so that you may receive an excused absence for election day and earn credit for community service.  If needed for a class or coursework, college students may submit their community service forms to the Human Resources/Poll Worker department in the Supervisor of Elections office for verification of service hours.

Resources
