Wisconsin is looking for citizens to serve as poll workers for the Tuesday, August 9 election. Many veteran poll workers are unable to work the polls so younger citizens are asked to step up.
- Search for you Municipal Clerk's contact information.
- Send them an email with Poll Worker Applicant in the subject line. Include your contact information and a share why you're interested in volunteering.
To be a poll worker, a person must:
- Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the election district for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote)
- Be at least 17 years-old
- Be able to read and write fluently in the English language
- Not be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election
Poll workers do everything from check-in voters, help people register to vote, check photo IDs and process absentee ballots. Local clerks will provide training prior to election day.
