The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office joins the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) and election officials across the country in celebrating National Poll Worker Recruitment Day, an annual day of action established by the EAC to encourage people to sign up as poll workers. The day aims to tackle the nationwide issue of poll worker shortages all while strengthening American democracy, inspiring civic engagement, and helping citizens vote.
Escambia County will need more than 600 election workers to staff its 79 precincts and 10 early voting sites for the 2024 election cycle, which includes three statewide elections. All positions are paid, and workers must complete a training session prior to each election they work. More information on general requirements and each of the poll worker positions is available at https://escambiavotes.gov/election-worker-information.
The Supervisor of Elections Office is currently holding orientations for those interested in working at the polls. The next orientation sessions will be held on Monday, September 11th, at 10:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. For more information on future orientations and how to attend, please contact the Supervisor of Elections Office by phone at (850) 595-3900 or email at [email protected].
