Poll workers (as opposed to poll “watchers”) are paid positions with your county of residence. We need good people working in polling locations across the State who are committed to providing access to the polls!
The counties train you, pay you, and you get to see the inner workings of election administration. Expect to work a full day on election day, and during the early vote period as well. To apply, you must be at least 16 years of age, and a resident of the county in which you are applying to work, and able to read, write, and understand English. You cannot be a candidate for public office, hold public office, or the close family member of a candidate or holder of public office.
If you want to apply to be a poll worker, find your county below and follow the instructions. As of late 2019, the information is correct. However, the contact information is likely to become outdated.
If the information above is outdated:
(1) Find your county on this website: https://elections.sos.ga.gov/Elections/countyregistrars.do
(2) Contact the person listed for information about how to apply to be a poll worker.
(3) If you get no response you’ll have to visit your county government offices to learn who is responsible for hiring and training poll workers.
If the information is outdated and you find updated information, please contact Abbey@georgiademocrat.org so we can update our spreadsheet.
If you become a poll watcher, please let us know and we’ll follow up with you about your experience.
