Become a Poll Worker

Poll Workers are the cornerstones of our democratic process.  Citizens in Wakulla County serve as Poll Workers for the Supervisor of Elections to ensure elections are accurate, accessible and transparent. On Election Day, we count on these civic-minded individuals to efficiently process voters, provide assistance, and guide voters on the proper use of our voting technologies and accessible devices. It is a great day to serve your community, meet new people, and earn some extra money!  It's a day to feel proud to be an American. 

Each polling site has an election board, which includes a Clerk, Assistant Clerk, Inspectors and a Deputy, and Poll Workers are selected and appointed to these positions by the Supervisor of Elections. 

 We look forward to meeting you!

Joe Morgan

Wakulla County Supervisor of Elections
