Poll Worker Information

Poll workers are the front line workers on Election Day, and one of the most important components of the election process.  The Washington County Board of Elections relies on hundreds of well-trained, civic minded citizens to serve as poll workers for each election.  In order to qualify as a poll worker you must:

  • Be at least 17 years of age prior to Election Day

  • Be able to work all Election Day (polls open at 7:00 am and close at 8:00 pm)
  • Be courteous, polite, and remain non-partisan throughout the day regardless of opinions expressed by voters
If this is you contact the Election Office at 724-228-6750 or by e-mail at washcoelections@co.washington.pa.us.  We are always looking for voters to serve as poll workers.  Poll workers are paid for their time, and you can earn a minimum of $130.
