About Being a Poll Worker
Poll Workers are the backbone of the Election System. Without them, we wouldn't be able to hold elections.
There are three job positions. Some of their job duties are listed below -
- Inspector - Like the manager of the poll. Responsible for managing the voting device, transporting election supplies from the Election Board to the poll, and transporting supplies back to the Election Board on election night, other duties as needed.
- Judge - Responsible for finding voters in the precinct registry and checking voter IDs, other duties as needed.
- Clerk - works closely with the Judge to issue the correct ballot or ballots to the voter, other duties as needed.
Poll Workers are paid based on the job position. Pay ranges from $100 - $110.
Requirements to become a Poll Worker
- Be a registered Voter in Tulsa County.
- Have your own car.
- Be able to communicate through email and text messages. This is the primary way we contact our workers.
- Attend a one-day training course.
- Be able to work an extremely long day. Workers are required to be at their assigned polling location from 6 a.m. on election day until at least 7 p.m. when the polls close, and all job duties are completed. They are required by law to be at their assigned location for the full election day (no split shifts, leaving early, or arriving late is allowed).
- We try to place workers as close to home as possible, but we ask for flexibility and willingness to go to polls where we have openings.
After submitting your application, the Precinct Official Department will be in contact with you soon.
