Poll Worker Frequently Asked Questions

For every county wide election, the Wilson County Election Commission relies on approximately 350 poll workers to staff the 18 polling places throughout Wilson County and staff the four Early Voting sites.

Being a poll worker is like being a "paid volunteer". The pay and the frequency of elections is not great enough or often enough to be a job anyone would take "for the money".

The greatest benefit to being a poll worker is the gratification derived from your active participation in the election process and public service.
