Election Workers Needed for 2018 Primary Election

The Montgomery County Board of Elections seeks registered voters to serve as election workers at polling places for the Primary Election to be held on June 26.

Individuals are needed to serve throughout the County; particularly in the areas of Bethesda, Cabin John, Chevy Chase, Darnestown, Potomac and Rockville.

Voters who speak multiple languages are also needed. Voters who are fluent in both English and Spanish are especially needed in each polling place to meet the requirements of Section 203 of the 1975 Voting Rights Act, which stipulates that bilingual Spanish speakers be available at the polling places.

Students 16 years old or older are eligible to register to vote and serve as election workers. Minors must demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the Maryland State Board of Elections, that they meet all qualifications for registration in the State. Students serving as election workers may choose to earn 25 Student Service Learning (SSL) credits in lieu of the stipend.

To apply online, or for more information, go to County's board of election website.
