We're always looking for interested, competent individuals to work at the polls on Election day. Even if you can't work every election, we like to have a list of workers to call for substitutions or additions. Training is provided before each election and there are plenty of mentors available during the work day. Part-day and full-day slots are available.

Election Worker Training

Election worker training will be held for all workers before all Elections. The focus of the training is usually on areas specific to a primary election, election laws, what to do in an emergency, and voter/election worker interaction, among other things.

Restrictions as an Election Worker

Election workers cannot vote absentee due to the fact that they are working in Grafton on Election Day. Part-time workers may vote while they are off duty. Full-time workers should make arrangements to vote during lunch break or during a slow time of day as approved by the Warden.
