In order to be an Election Officer, you must:

  • Be fluent in English
  • Be a registered voter in the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Be able to fulfill the Federal I-9 employment eligibility requirements
  • Attend a 3-hour training class
  • Arrive at the polling place at 5:00 am and remain until all work has been completed after the polls close at 7pm
  • Have basic computer skills

The Election Officer’s main priority is to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the election process. A typical Election Day consists of:

  • arriving one hour before polls open to set up voting equipment
  • hanging up pertinent signage
  • preparing the polling room for voting
  • processing voters throughout the day
  • assisting with operating voting equipment
  • securing voting equipment and closing down the polling place at the end of the day

Election Officers are offered a stipend of $175 for serving a full day. We especially encourage bilingual citizens to serve as we need language assistance in many precincts. Residency in Fairfax County is not required. It is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in the election process or public service, and we need civic-minded individuals to help make Election Day a success!
