Poll Workers

Interested in being a Poll Worker?

There is a continuing need for people to work at the polls on election days and early voting, as well as a need for bilingual workers (English/Spanish). The Erath County Clerk’s Office is always recruiting people who are interested in assisting in this important part of the democratic process. Some of the requirements are:

  • Be a registered voter in Erath County

  • Have transportation

  • Able to attend training in Stephenville

  • Able to work a 14-hour day, sitting and standing

  • Able to handle basic computer work

Cannot be:

  • an elected official of any jurisdiction

  • a candidate on the ballot, or

  • employed by or related within the second degree of blood or marriage to an opposed candidate on the ballot

A typical election day starts with setting up the polling place at 6:30 AM, voting from 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM, followed by about an hour of taking down the voting equipment and packing up supplies. For early voting, the polls open at different times; however, we need our workers to arrive 30 minutes prior to opening and be able to stay at least 30 minutes after the polls close.

Pay rate is $9.50 per hour.
