Volunteer! Be a Poll Worker
Election Day, Tuesday, November 6
It takes more than 2,500 poll workers to conduct an election. Poll workers operate polling places on Election Day and assist voters in many parts of the voting process. Some poll workers have volunteered during every election for decades. Poll workers include high school students learning on-the-job civics lessons, retirees, and hundreds of people who take a day off from their regular lives to be of service to San Francisco voters.
To be a Poll Worker, you must be:
• A U.S. legal permanent resident, age 18 or older, or
• A registered California voter, or
• A San Francisco high school student at least 16 years old*
If you are bilingual in English and Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese, Korean, Cantonese, or Mandarin, we encourage you to apply! Earn a stipend of up to $195 while helping your community.
How to apply:
Apply at the Poll Worker Recruitment Office (City Hall, Room 48), Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
* High school students can visit sfelections.org/student for instructions and to download an application.

We look forward to having you join our poll worker team!
