Poll workers are paid election officials who staff local polling places to carry out assigned Election Day procedures. Their work begins before the election – as each worker is required to undergo training to carry out these tasks. Election workers are essential to the democratic process and ensure that the rights of each and every eligible voter are protected. There are approximately 1,980 polling places across the State of Alabama.
