Poll Worker Information

 

Thank you for your interest in joining our Election Team, as a Citrus County Poll Worker.  Becoming a poll worker is a very important decision and requires making a serious commitment to the Team.  You must be able to attend an orientation session and, if hired, mandatory training classes.  Poll workers are paid for each election worked (Election Day) and for the hours worked, if employed at Early Vote sites (daily for up to 2 weeks prior to Election Day.)  The amount paid depends on the position for which you are hired and the number of training classes attended.  We will be featuring electronic poll books in the 2016 election cycle, so it is important that you are comfortable with computers.  We do, however, have a position that does not require computer use.  


Also, a poll worker is required to:

·        be a registered voter in Citrus county
·        be able to read and write the English language
·        attend an orientation session
·        pass a written exam
·        attend all mandatory training classes if hired
·        have reliable transportation
·        be able to work at least 14 hours on Election Day (no shifts)
·        be able to fulfill your schedule if hired for Early Voting
·        be a responsible team-player
·        make a serious commitment, if hired
