Requirements and Qualifications of Precinct Election Officials

Training & Hours

In-Person training is required prior to ALL elections. Dates and times for training will be given when you receive notification about working an election.

On election day your day will start at your assigned polling location at 6:00 am and end between 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The polls open at 7:00 am and close at 8:00 pm statewide. Workers must remain at the polling location all day with necessary scheduled breaks included.

Compensation

How will I be notified about working an election?

You will receive notification by email or mail before each election. 

You may be called to work in any election that may be held within Jasper County. You will most likely be called to work in your own precinct, but you may be asked to work at a different precinct as needed. Polling locations require party balance which may occasionally result in you being assigned to a different polling location than where you vote. Three to eight officials will be assigned per polling location depending on the number of expected voters at that polling place for a particular election. You may not be called to work in every election.

If you are unavailable to work in an election, you may decline to work in that election. If our records indicate you have declined to work in multiple consecutive elections you may be removed from our list.
