Election Workers Needed in Montgomery County for 2022 Gubernatorial Primary Election

The Montgomery County Board of Elections is seeking registered voters to serve as election workers at polling places for the Gubernatorial Primary Election to be held on June 28.

Individuals are needed to serve throughout the County; particularly in the areas of Bethesda, Cabin John, Chevy Chase, Darnestown, Potomac and Rockville.

Due to the diversity within the County, voters who speak multiple languages are encouraged to apply. Voters who are fluent in both English and Spanish are especially needed in each polling place to meet the requirements of Section 203 of the 1975 Voting Rights Act which stipulates that bilingual Spanish speakers be available at the polling places.

Students 16 or older are eligible to register to vote and serve as election workers. Each minor must demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the Maryland State Board of Elections, that they meet all qualifications for registration in the State. Students serving as election workers may choose to earn up to 25 Student Service Learning (SSL) credits in lieu of the stipend.

To serve in the paid volunteer position, all election workers must be registered to vote in the State of Maryland and able to speak, read and write the English language. They cannot hold, or be a candidate for, public or party office. In addition, election workers may not serve as a campaign manager for a candidate or as treasurer for any campaign finance entity.

Training is required and will be provided to all election workers. This includes an online quiz, virtual training and in-person classroom training. Volunteers will be paid for completing training and working the election. The Board of Elections offers several different positions, all-day and part-day, as advertised at www.777vote.org.

To apply, text SERVE to 77788 or go to the website at www.777vote.org. The website offers additional information by selecting the Election Workers’ link. More information also can be obtained by email at [email protected] or by calling the Election Worker mainline at 240-777-8533.
