Poll Worker Service
If you will be at least 16 years old by the next Election Day, you can apply to serve as a poll worker. Poll worker service looks great on a college application or resume. You will also receive a $225 stipend. To learn more about serving as a poll worker, visit our poll worker page.
If you are a junior or senior, you can apply to serve as an election intern. Interns serve for 2 weeks in either September or April. Interns receive a stipend for up to $550. After training, each intern creates and implements an outreach plan to help register people to vote. To learn more about this program, contact us.
If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can complete a paper or online voter registration form now. On your 18th birthday, we will activate your voter record and send a confirmation letter. After your birthday, we will also start mailing you official election materials.
