Fairfax County Office of Elections

The Office of Elections is currently recruiting voters to serve as Election Officers a few days a year, including the upcoming General Election to be held on November 8, 2022. Election Officers are needed at each of the 265 precincts in Fairfax County to run the polls and assist the voters.

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 $250 for serving a full day.

We especially encourage bilingual citizens (Korean, Vietnamese needed now) to serve as we need language assistance election officers 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!

To apply, fill and submit the online form at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/elections/election-officers/apply
or view our website at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/elections/officers/new-officers for more information.

Note, to be considered to serve in the November 6th election, please apply by October 9, 2023.
