WE NEED YOUR HELP!  The Prince William County Office of Elections needs dedicated individuals who take pride in their work and enjoy working with people to serve as election officers.  Election officers must be a registered Virginia voter and have basic computer skills including a personal email account.  Officers must arrive at their assigned precinct no later than 5AM on each election day and remain until after the polls close at 7PM.  They will help set up voting equipment, check in and assist voters and help tally the results.

Election officers get paid $125 for working a full election day and will receive an additional $15 for attending required training.  Officers are appointed for a three-year term and must be available to work all elections, including June primaries and November general elections.  Virginia law requires both major parties to be equally represented in each precinct so we need citizens from all political backgrounds.  The Office of Elections is working proactively to protect the health and safety of both election officers and voters in all of our precincts during the pandemic.

We have at least two elections every year in Virginia and there are 93 polling places in the county.   Working at the polls is a great way to serve your community and we need your help!  Given the diversity of our county, bilingual citizens are particularly needed.

Democracy is not a spectator sport!  You can sign up to become an election officer at the Office of Elections website, www.pwcvotes.org, or contact Shayna DeBruce at sdebruce@pwcgov.org or 703-792-6482.
