Poll Workers

Every Election Day polling place in North Carolina is staffed with three appointed judges; a Chief Judge and two Judges who serve a two-year term. Among these three judges both major political parties must be represented. In addition to the three judges, poll worker assistants help conduct the election. The number of assistants at a polling place is dependent on the size of the precinct. These assistants, along with the judges, perform various duties for which they'll be trained:

  • Check-In Table
    • Receive the voter’s name, address, and party (during primaries only) to verify their registration.
  • Ballot Table
    • Provide the voter with their ballot; instruct them how to mark the ballot and feed it into the DS200 voting machine.
  • Voting Equipment
    • Open and start voting machines. Respond to any alarms/alerts from the voting machine. After the polls close, close the machine and print results tapes in the presence of the three Judges.
  • Help Table
    • Process voters with address changes. Transfer and direct voters to the correct polling place. Offer and provide voters provisional ballot materials and instructions on the provisional process.
  • Greeter / Curbside
    • Greet and direct voters as they enter the polling place. Assist voters who, due to age or disability, cannot enter the polling place.

Compensation for poll workers:

  • Chief Judges: $150
  • Judges: $135
  • Assistants: $120
  • Training: $15
  • Polling place setup: $15
