Working at the Polls
People are always needed to work at the polling places. Poll workers (Election Inspectors) conduct assigned duties at a polling site on Election Days. Duties can include issuing ballots to registered voters, registering voters, monitoring the voting equipment, explaining how to mark the ballot or use the voting equipment. It is important and rewarding work, and you even get paid.
To be a poll worker, a person must:
- Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located
- Be able to speak, read, and write fluently in the English language
- Have strong clerical skills
- Be able to solve problems
- Be an effective communicator
- NOT be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.
To become a poll worker, contact your local municipal clerk’s office. Your clerk’s name and contact information can be found at myvote.wi.gov
