SAN FRANCISCO, Monday, October 15, 2018–With the countdown to the November 6 election underway, the Department of Elections seeks poll workers to help administer voting at neighborhood polling places on Election Day.

To sign up to be poll workers, people can call (415) 554-4395 or apply in person at the Department of Elections in City Hall, Room 48.

Poll workers attend a training session prior to serving as Clerks or Inspectors on Election Day. Inspectors are responsible for bringing ballots and other voting materials to their assigned polling places on election morning and overseeing operations at the sites. Clerks assist with a variety of tasks including checking in voters, issuing ballots, and providing general voter assistance. For one day of service, poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $142 to $195, depending on the assignment.

San Francisco voters depend on reliable and dedicated volunteers to make every Election Day run smoothly. With many community members having already joined the City’s poll worker team, the Department of Elections looks forward to welcoming other civic-minded individuals to the team.

For more information about volunteering as a poll worker, visit or call (415) 554-4395.
