Cochise County Accepting Applications for Election Board Workers


The Cochise County Elections Department is now accepting online applications to become an Election Board Worker for the August and November 2022 midterm elections. Openings are available for nearly all 17 locations throughout Cochise County. 

Election Board Workers, also known as poll workers, open and close the Vote Centers on Election Day. Election Day duties as assigned include early morning equipment setup and opening for voting promptly at 6:00 a.m. Throughout the day, election workers greet voters, verify identification, sign in voters using electronic poll books, issue ballots, and assist voters as needed. At the end of the night when the Vote Centers close at 7:00 p.m., election workers pack up the equipment, secure election materials, record, certify and audit vote totals. 

“This is an important opportunity to get involved in the election process and make a difference in your community,” says Elections Director Lisa Marra. “It’s a long, but rewarding day where citizens put political views aside and work together as a team, knowing they helped ensure the basic right to vote in fair and free elections in Cochise County.”

Successful applicants may earn up to $150 per election depending upon assignments and training. Online and in-person training is provided prior to each election, as required by law.   

Election workers must be residents and eligible voters in Cochise County and be 18 years of age or older by no later than Election Day for the current election. High School students interested in being considered for a Student Clerk position may also apply.

Join the team of dependable and proud individuals by becoming an Election Board Worker. Together, with you, we can look forward to another successful election cycle in Cochise County.
