It is important to have a strong attention to detail, effective communication skills and the ability to sit/stand for long periods of time. Polls are open
from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; election workers report at 6:00 a.m. and work until as late at 11:00 p.m. Poll workers are provided breakfast and dinner, an hourly wage and paid training.
