Election Poll Workers

A message to the Citizens of Utah County :

 

On election days for an even numbered year (2014, 2016, etc.), over 900 poll workers staff our precincts throughout Utah County. Each poll worker is part of the important election process.

Utah County uses electronic voting equipment which requires additional skills and responsibilities to work with the equipment, some positions will receive an extra stipend for the additional responsibilities and transporting supplies.

Training is mandatory for each election. All poll workers will be required to attend training prior to each election. Poll Managers and Touch Screen Technicians will be required to attend additional training.

If you would like to be one of these dedicated people who serve their community and contribute to our democratic election process, please complete the questionnaire/application on this web page and mail it to the address listed below.

If you have been selected to serve, you will receive an assignment and a training schedule.


Thank you,

Bryan Thompson
Utah County Clerk
