Election officers are paid a stipend, which is determined by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Elections. For information regarding the rate of pay, please contact your local registrar's office.
Election Officers are assigned to work in their home precinct polling place, but if no vacancies are available, you may be asked to work at another precinct. You may be asked to serve as an alternate to fill in for previously-assigned Election Officers who are unable to serve.
Their duties include:
Three (3) Election Officers work in the Central Absentee Voter Precinct (CAP) on Election Day. These officers check the names of absentee voters off poll book list and tabulate the absentee ballots.
Training schedules and precinct assignments are mailed approximately four to six weeks prior to Election Day.
