Become an Election Worker

Election workers are the last line of defense that we have to ensure voters are receiving the smoothest and fairest opportunity to vote. We are actively recruiting election workers to be on our registry to work upcoming elections.

Am I eligible to work?

Any registered voter in Dallas County is eligible to work. However, to be appointed by the Democratic Party you must have voted in the most recent Democratic Primary or sign an oath of affiliation.

What's the difference between an Election Judge and Election Clerk?

An Election Judge or Alternate Judge is appointed by each Party for each voting location to conduct the election. The Democratic Party appoints an Election Judge if the precinct voted for the Democratic candidate for Governor in mid-term election years or if the precinct voted for the Republican candidate an Alternate Judge is appointed.

An Election Judge is the first point of contact to hold the election and the person in charge of their voting location. An Alternate Judge is the backup if the Election Judge is not able to work. If the Election Judge is able conduct the election, the Alternate Judge is still legally allowed to work in coordination with the Election Judge. An Election Clerk works to support the Judge. These positions are paid positions and workers are recruited for both early voting and Election Day.

This volunteer job is outside of the polling location for the entirety of the approximately two hour shift.
