Working the Polls 

You can apply to join as one of the citizens serving as an Officer of Election! It takes over 700 Officers of Election working the polls to conduct an election in Chesterfield County.

Whether you are a worker, student, retiree, or person of leisure, your desire to be part of the process and your willingness to work qualifies you for consideration.

As a registered voter in Chesterfield County you can serve your community and earn a little extra money as an Officer of Election.

  • Setting up and closing the polls
  • Demonstrating voting equipment
  • Issuing ballots to voters
  • Providing voter assistance
  • Overseeing election procedures to ensure a fair and impartial election

Compensation for service as an Officer of Election begins at $150 per election. You are eligible to work in any Chesterfield County polling place, not just the polling place where you would normally vote.

All officers of election report to the polls at 5:15 a.m. and remain until results are reported after the 7 p.m. close of the polls.
