In order to be an Election Officer, you must:

•             Be fluent in English

•             Be a registered voter in the Commonwealth of Virginia

•             Be able to fulfill the Federal I-9 employment eligibility requirements

•             Attend a 3-hour training class

•             Arrive at the polling place at 5:00 am and remain until all work has been completed after the polls close at 7pm

•             Have basic computer skills

 

The Election Officer's main priority is to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the election process. A typical Election Day consists of:

•             arriving one hour before polls open to set up voting equipment

•             hanging up pertinent signage

•             preparing the polling room for voting

•             processing voters throughout the day

•             assisting with operating voting equipment

•             securing voting equipment and closing down the polling place at the end of the day

 

Election Officers are offered a stipend of $175 for serving a full day. We especially encourage bilingual citizens to serve as we need language assistance in many precincts. Residency in Fairfax County is not required.

 

It is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in the election process or public service, and we need civic-minded individuals to help make Election Day a success!
