You can make sure we have safe, fair, and efficient elections for all. Become a poll worker today!

To serve as an Election Day Worker, you must:

  • Be a resident of DC
  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Complete at least four hours of training before each election

If you are selected and assigned to a polling place, hours of work are:

  • Early Voting: One of two six-hour shirts (8am-2pm OR 1:30pm-7:30pm) on days assigned
  • Monday before Election Day (Polling Place Setup): two to three hours
  • Election Day: 6am-9pm. Election day is a long day's work so be sure to bring any necessary items (prescriptions, food, water, etc.) to last throughout the day.

Workers receive a one-time payment, which includes training.
