Become an election poll official

On Election Day approximately 3,000 of your neighbors serve the voters in Gwinnett County by working as poll officials. You can be one of that number. As a Poll Official at one of our polling places, you would play an active role in ensuring the on-going success of the electoral process.

We need dedicated individuals who take pride in their work, are patient and enjoy working with people, and who take direction well and are detail oriented.

Whenever possible, Poll Officials are assigned to their home precinct. However, if there are no vacancies at your polling place, you may be asked to work at a nearby precinct.You must complete an online training course prior to each election, as required by the state, and depending on assigned position may be required to attend an additional 2 to 4 hour in person training. On Election Day you must report to your assigned polling place by 6:00 a.m. and remain until all voters have left and closing procedures are completed.
