Board Worker Requirements

What are the requirements?

You must be registered to vote in Maricopa County, in order to register you must meet the following requirements:

  • A citizen of the United States.
  • 18 Years of age or older preceding the next General Election.
  • A resident of the state 29 days preceding the next General Election.
  • Have not been convicted of a felony or treason, or if so, your civil rights have been restored.
What will be expected of me, what are my duties?
  • Duties vary according to the position chosen. There are no math tests, and everything is extremely “user friendly”. However, the hours are long, and once sworn in you may not leave the polling place until the polls are closed.
  • Inspectors, Judges, and all first-time boardworkers are expected to attend a training class approximately 2-6 weeks before the actual Election Day (typically 2hrs), you will also need to assist your co-workers in “setting-up” the polling place the Monday before the Election.
  • On Election Day you are to report to work at 5:30 a.m., and you will not be finished until approximately 8:00 p.m. that evening.
Do I get paid?

Yes, again depending on the position chosen.

  • Inspectors - (in "charge" of the polling place) $140
  • Judges - $125
  • Clerks - $125
  • Marshal - $125
Can I work at a location near my home?
  • Yes, it is always our intent to have our workers work at a polling place within their voting precinct when possible. If we can’t place you in your own precinct we will at least try to place you in a neighboring precinct.
When is the next election in my area?
