Union County, NJ – Union County residents seeking an opportunity to help during the 2020 Presidential election cycle can apply to become poll workers this year. All poll workers must attend a mandatory training session and will earn a $200 stipend for their services on Election Day.
“If you are following this year’s Presidential Election, and are interested in learning more about the election process, becoming a poll worker is an exciting and rewarding way to participate,” said Union County Board of Elections Administrator Nicole DiRado.
Poll workers perform essential services on Election Day, by ensuring every eligible voter is afforded an opportunity to exercise their constitutional right to vote.
Any Union County resident who is 18 years or older, and registered to vote in Union County, can apply to become a poll worker.
No experience is needed. All new poll workers must attend a single-session training course. Returning poll workers take a refresher course every two years.
Persons interested in becoming a poll worker for the Primary Election on June 2nd and the General Election on November 3rd are advised to apply now to reserve a spot.
To apply, download an application form at the Board of Elections website, ucnj.org/Poll-Worker-Application-2020.pdf, or request an application form by mail by calling the Board of Elections at 908-527-4120.
