Be an Officer of Election

Having thoughts about being an active participant in the electoral process?

Become an Officer of Election (OOE)!

Whether you:

  • Work
  • Are retired
  • Are a student
  • Are a person of leisure

You can serve your community, fulfill your civic duty, and earn a little extra money.

It takes over 900 OOE’s in 76 precincts (polling locations) to conduct an election in Chesterfield County.


  • Must be a registered voter of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Must enjoy meeting people and serving the public.
  • Must be able to take direction, pay attention to detail, and not be easily distracted.
  • Must be able to sit and/or stand for long periods of time.
  • Must be able to lift 40 pounds.
  • Must be available to work the entire day on Election Day (5 a.m. – approximately 9 p.m.).


  • Cannot hold elected office or be the employee of an elected official.

Application Process

Things to remember

  • An officer of election must complete training prior to working in his/her first election. This training requirement repeats every three years with the start of a new term of service (i.e. March 1, 2018 - February 28, 2021). 
  • The Chief Officer will contact you approximately 30 days before the election to see if you can work.
  • Becoming an Officer of Election (OOE) does not guarantee that you will work every election.
  • For your service, you will earn a minimum of $150.
  • All OOE’s are eligible to vote an Absentee Ballot. Officers may request an absentee ballot mailed to their home or take advantage of In-Person Absentee Voting before Election Day.
  • Letters confirmingofficer of election service are provided on request.
