Poll workers demonstrate how voting equipment works and explain voting procedures.
At the end of the day, they close the precinct and prepare materials for the Inspector to deliver ballots to the Election Board office. All Election Officials witness the ballot transfer cases being loaded into the Inspector’s vehicle for transport.
Poll workers receive a stipend of $100. It’s a long but rewarding day— shifts can last 13 hours or more, from before the polling site opens until after it closes (with occasional breaks).
HEART to SERVE
This is a position is a volunteer position. It gives you an opportunity to serve in a critical role in keeping our country free. Without an opportunity for our citizens to speak their voice through SECRET Balloting we open ourselves to tyranny. Keeping the Integrity of the VOTE is vitally IMPORTANT. Our Poll Workers are Extremely important!
Poll Workers must be a registered voter in the county where they are serving.
REMEMBER YOUR VOTE
If you are not scheduled to work at your own polling place you should plan to request and cast an absentee ballot or vote Early. Rogers County has two locations for early voting. The Election Board Office located at 415 West 1st in Claremore, and in Owasso at Central Baptist Church located between 86th and 96th street North on 145th street. Early Voting in Oklahoma is always Thursday and Friday 8-6 and Saturday 9-2 the week before any State or National Election.
Elections are ALWAYS on TUESDAYS
Election Dates always land on Tuesday. In Even Numbered years there are only 7 possible Elections and during odd years there is a possibility of 11 elections. Not Every Polling place is always engaged, so it could be months between opportunities to work an election.
You made it this far, so I hope you will join the ranks of Rogers County Election Officials. Call the office and talk to Julie about scheduling training.
