Looking to help out at the polls for the April 7, 2020 election? If so, there are several different ways you can assist your community in running the election.

Polling Place Helper:  You can volunteer to help out at a polling place by making sure voters are in the correct lines, assist with enforcing social distancing and making sure the polling place is properly cleaned throughout the day.  Citizens who just want to help with these tasks on election day do not need to meet any training or residency requirements.

Election Inspector:  You can work as an election inspector at any polling place in your county helping voters get checked in, issuing ballots and helping voters register.  All you need to do is receive some training which you can take online and be a resident of the county where you would like to work.

Chief Election Inspector: The Chief Election Inspector serves as the lead election official at a polling place.  In order to become a Chief Election Inspector, you would have to take required online or in-person baseline training which lasts roughly 2 hours.  Chief Election Inspectors must be residents of the town, village or city where you live (in a pinch a Chief Inspector can be from the county).

Greeters or Election Registration Officials:  Each polling place can have one person appointed as an official Greeter who must be a resident of the county where they wish to serve.  Greeters can also help at a polling place by making sure voters are in the correct line and assist with sanitization efforts.  Election Registration Officials, or EROs, must be residents of the county in which they serve and help voters with registering to vote on election day. Both greeters and EROs must take some training about the job they will be doing before election day.
