Poll workers are essential to ensuring that elections are a success, and HAVA instructs EAC to assist election officials in recruiting, training and retaining poll workers by conducting research and administering the Help America Vote College Program.

Get started and find out if you are eligible. Go to Poll Worker Requirements by State (August 2007).

  1. Find out if you must be a registered voter in the state.
  2. Find out if there is an age requirement.
  3. Find out if there is a residency requirement.
  4. Find out if a political party affiliation is required.

Then contact your local election office and sign up to be a poll worker. They will be happy to add you to the Election Day Team.
