<b>What is An Election Worker</b>
An election worker is a registered Maryland voter who volunteers to assist voters on Election Day. The role of an election worker is to ensure fair and accessible elections for all voters and to protect the integrity of the election process. In accordance with Federal and State law, they must perform all of the duties assigned by the local Board of Elections and perform their duties faithfully, diligently, and without partiality or prejudice.

An election worker who serves in the polling place is a very important part of the electoral process. This individual is the point of contact between the Board of Elections and the general public during voting hours. He/She is responsible for administering the actual voting procedures in each precinct and making sure that the voters have a positive voting experience. Without these individuals, it would be impossible to conduct successful elections.


1. Be a registered voter in Maryland
2. Clearly and fluently speak, read and legibly write the English language
3. Under Maryland law, an election worker may not hold or be a candidate for any elective public or political party office or any office created under the Constitution or Laws of the State and may not serve as a campaign manager for a candidate or as the treasurer for a campaign finance entity.
4. Be able to work the hours required for the position selected.
5. Lift approximately 50 pounds with assistance.
6. Successfully complete Stage One (online) and Stage Two (hands-on) training.
7. Deal courteously and patiently with the public and coworkers.
8. Attend a mandatory meeting on the Monday evening prior to each election at the assigned polling precinct.

<b>Become An Election Judge</b>
Every election approximately 3,500 judges ensure that polling places run smoothly and the election is carried out honestly and accurately. Applications are accepted year round; however the deadline to apply to work in a specific election is 21 business days prior to the election. Applications can be submitted online, in our office during normal business hours, by email (scanned) or fax. Applications received after the deadline may be processed or held for the next election.
