Poll Worker Frequently Asked Questions

For every county wide election the Cannon County Election Commission relies on approximately 100 poll workers to staff the 9 polling places throughout Cannon County and staff the  Early Voting site.

Being a poll worker is like being a "paid volunteer". The pay and the frequency of elections is not great enough or often enough to be a job anyone would take "for the money".

The greatest benefit to being a poll worker is the gratification derived from your active participation in the election process.
