A unique opportunity to serve their community, meet their neighbors, and become involved in the democratic process. A poll manager’s Election Day duties include Processing of voters, Electronic ballot selection, Activation of the voting system, Compliance with election laws and procedures, General assistance to voters and Curbside voting. By submitting an application, your name will be added to our database of citizens who are interested in serving as a poll manager. When a position becomes available at a precinct in our county, the Precinct Clerk (Chairman) and Election Staff uses this database to contact citizens to fill the vacancy.
