Frequently Asked Questions        

What are the requirements to work as a poll worker?

  • You must be a registered voter in Orange County (except for the Help Desk Oath Person)
  • You must attend a mandatory poll worker training class prior to each election, for a minimum of 3 hours
  • You must be available to work a minimum of 14 hours on Election Day
  • You must perform all duties pertaining to your position as assigned
  • You must be willing to represent our office well in public

Is this a paid position?

Yes. Orange County poll workers are paid between $160-275 per election, depending on the position you work. We do not pay for training separately, since it is lumped into the election day pay.

What are my duties?

  • Report to your polling place by 6 a.m. on Election Day
  • Assist in setting up the polling place, according to your assigned position
  • Assist other workers, when necessary
  • Treat the voters in a courteous manner
  • Follow voting procedures presented in your training class, and the poll worker manual
  • Assist in closing the polls, according to your assigned position

Where will I be assigned to work?

Although we try to assign our workers to work as close to their home precinct as possible, you must be willing to travel to other polling place locations.

Can I vote on Election Day?

By law, you can only vote in your home precinct on Election Day. If you are not assigned to work your home precinct on Election Day, you should vote either by filling out the vote-by-mail ballot that will be automatically sent to you when you are assigned to work, or by voting early.
