Work in Elections


RALEIGH, N.C. – North Carolina elections officials are looking for “democracy heroes” to work at polling places.

These local heroes will protect democracy, learn about the elections process, serve their communities and get paid in the process.

The State Board of Elections encourages voters of all ages to lend a hand to the democratic process.

To learn more and express your interest in working in elections, visit the State Board of Elections’ website.

After completing the online form, your information will be forwarded to your county board of elections. You will be contacted if election workers are needed in your county.

Election workers have an important role. They:
• Staff polling places during early voting and on Election Day
• Set up and close the voting enclosure
• Check in voters and issue ballots
• Assist voters upon request
• Serve at the Help Table and perform research for voters who are not on the pollbook

To serve as an election worker, you must be a registered voter and serve in your county of residence. Other restrictions may apply. To check your registration status, go here:
