  • Requirements

    • Be a registered voter in Miami-Dade County.
    • Be able to read and write the English language.
    • Attend mandatory training prior to each election.
    • Have excellent customer service skills.
    • Be respectful of all voters.
    • Represent the County in a professional manner.
    • Be able to work long hours.

    • Have transportation to and from the polls.
    • Have a valid email address.
  • Training & Pay

    Per Florida Statute, poll workers are required to train prior to each election. Training for countywide elections is typically offered over several days and in a variety of locations. The type of training and number of classes offered is dependent on the needs of each election.

    Please see the Requirements above regarding poll worker eligibility before submitting an application.

    Poll workers are paid a stipend for their time based on position in accordance with the Poll Worker Payment Schedule. Important: In order to be paid for training, a poll worker must also perform their assigned Election Day duties.

    With several elections already on the Elections Calendar, there are many opportunities to serve as a poll worker this year and beyond!

  • On Election Day

    We do our best to place poll workers at their home precinct; however, if their precinct is full, they may be assigned to another nearby precinct.

    Poll workers must be at their assigned polling place at 5:30 a.m. on Election Day. Polls are officially open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

    Importantly, poll workers are not permitted to leave their assigned polling place on Election Day, and are urged to vote early or by vote-by-mail ballot.

  • Returning for Future Elections

    Once you have worked at the polls on Election Day, your poll worker record will remain active. Meaning, you will not have to reapply to be a poll worker for future elections. Training, however, is mandatory for all poll workers prior to each election.

    To confirm that you are still active in our poll worker database, please call 305-499-8448 or email pwinformation@miamidade.gov.

  • College & University Students

    The Miami-Dade County Elections Department greatly encourages college and university students to become involved in the election process. An essential role in the process includes the involvement and commitment of poll workers. While serving as a poll worker, students not only have the opportunity to receive a stipend, but they may also earn service learning hours. If you are interested or have any questions related to this opportunity, please contact Lady Delgado, our Poll Worker Recruiter, at lady.delgado@miamidade.gov.
