Youth at the Booth: Student Poll Worker Program

Student poll workers are an integral part of the voting process in Wakulla County.  Students are encouraged to be a part of these nonpartisan teams on election day. In addition to experiencing the elections process firsthand, students can gain valuable community service credits for attending training and get paid for working on election day. If you are interested in making a difference in your community and making a few dollars while you do it, consider joining our team as a student poll worker
