We Depend on our Poll Workers

Poll workers play a key role in Election Day tasks and make it possible for us to make the voting process a positive experience for our community. Poll workers may issue ballots, verify names and addresses, register voters, distribute “I Voted” stickers, and assist voters.


If you would like to become a poll worker in Bannock County, you must meet the following requirements:

  •  Be a citizen of the United States
  •  Be at least 16 years old
  •  Attend mandatory training
  •  Ability to read and write in English
  •  Be able to lift 20 lbs.
  •  Ability to follow detailed instructions
  •  Remain politically neutral while serving at the polls
What to know before working at the polls:
  • Election Day is a 14-hour+ day, depending on the election. All poll workers must arrive at their assigned voting precinct by 7 a.m. and remain at the polling place until the polls close and the location is cleaned up, which is typically around 9 p.m.
  • Poll workers are responsible for bringing their own meals. Make sure you bring enough food to last you the entire day.
  • Elections are very important, and even a small error can have significant consequences in the election process. We ask all poll workers to pay special attention to detail in their work.
  • Poll workers must remain politically neutral while working at the polling place.
  • Poll workers must provide their own transportation to and from their assigned polling place.
  • Poll workers are expected to help prepare the voting area by setting up tables and chairs.
  • Polling places can be busy during peak times. At times, there may even be lines to vote. This can sometimes cause stressful situations for our poll workers who have to deal with impatient voters.
  • Finally, we encourage each of our poll workers to request an absentee ballot to vote or vote early.
