To guarantee your appointment to a specific location, please contact your preferred political party. Indiana code guarantees the two major political parties the right to appoint poll workers to each Election Day location. After a statutory deadline in October, the Election Board is permitted to assign workers to fill any existing vacancies. Your application on this site will identify you as available to work, and available for appointment by the Election Board.
To qualify as a poll worker, you must:
Be a registered voter in St. Joseph County. (exception: high school students)
Attend training provided by the Election Board.
Work the entire day from 5am until tear down after the last voter has voted.
