Work at the Polls


Thank you for your interest in becoming a poll worker in Teton County. We want to make sure we provide you with all of the information you need to decide if becoming a poll worker is the right fit for you. On this page, you will find details on the expectations for poll workers, requirements of the job, and an application.


What to Know Before Working at the Polls

Simply put, we depend on our poll workers. They play a key role in Election Day tasks and make it possible for us to make the voting process a positive experience for our community. Poll workers may issue ballots, verify names and addresses, register voters, distribute “I Voted” stickers and assist voters. Poll workers earn $9.50 per hour for attending training and on Election Day.
