A poll worker must be available for training. Florida Statute requires that a poll worker receive a certain number of training hours, depending on the position they are working, before each election. These classes involve training on proper Election Day administration and operation of the optical scan and touch screen tabulation equipment.

The number of poll workers needed for each election is determined by the size of the election and the expected turnout.

In summary, a Suwannee County Poll Worker must be dedicated! If this sounds like the type of opportunity you would want to pursue, we would love for you to join our team.
