Poll Workers

The heart and soul of our elections are the poll workers that run the precincts in Duval County.

The value of their work is often overlooked by the voters because when things go very smoothly, poll workers are hardly even noticed. Poll workers are patriotic and show great respect for the election process. They take pride in their work and are focused on the protection of every citizen’s right to vote.

We are always looking for poll workers to work with us to ensure fair, accurate and accessible elections. We especially need bilingual poll workers. We also invite 16- and 17-year-old high school students who are pre-registered to vote to join us as poll workers.

Training Schedule

Training for the August Primary will be a combination of online and in-person training. Staffed poll workers will receive an invitation by email in July to access online election training. Once a poll worker has completed their assigned online training, they will be prompted to schedule their in-person training lab. The training labs will be at the Election Center at 1 Imeson Boulevard. Training labs are first come first served. A lab may be canceled if there are not sufficient registrations.

Poll workers for Early Voting will only attend one Early Voting Training Lab in addition to the online training.

New poll workers will take the complete training in person, but only if they have already been staffed. 

There is no in person training requirement for experienced Deputies that worked in March. Instead, experienced Deputies will only take the online Deputy course. If you did not work in March, you will take the New Deputy class in person so that you can take the Oath.

If you are an experienced poll worker and you have not received a staffing assignment or online training notification by email by July 8th, you may email duvalelectionsedu@coj.net to inquire about your work status.
