Be an Election Worker on Election Day

As coronavirus continues to impact Americans across the country, we are also seeing a staggering decrease in poll workers — which could mean closed polling places and long delays for elections in 2020. You can help make sure we have a safe, fair, efficient election for all voters, and potentially get paid to do it.  Visit Power the Polls to learn more.

In Maryland:

  • Challengers and Watchers - These authorized individuals can be in early voting vote centers and polling places and observe activities.
  • Election Judges - Without them, there would be no elections! Election judges are the individuals who check in voters, provide instructions and answer questions, and generally monitor the activities in the polling place.
  • Voter Registration - Do you want to help register people to vote? Voter registration distributors are trained to assist people with registering to vote and delivering completed applications to a county board of elections.
