Volunteer! Be a Poll Worker
Election Day, Tuesday, November 5
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 civic 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 registered California voter, or
• A U.S. legal permanent resident, age 18 or older, or
• A San Francisco high school student at least 16 years old*
If you are bilingual in English and Chinese, Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese, or Korean, we encourage you to apply!
Earn a stipend of up to $240 while helping your community.
