Volunteer! Be a Poll Worker
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 people from all areas of our community. High school students, retirees, and hundreds of people 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 age 16 or older*.
If you are bilingual in English and Chinese, Spanish, Filipino, Burmese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, or Vietnamese, we encourage you to apply! Earn a stipend of up to $240 while helping your community vote.
