How long do I work on Election Day?

Poll workers report to the polling location around 6AM to prepare for opening at 7AM and remain on duty until all materials have been collected and all paperwork has been completed at the end of the day, approximately around 9:30PM. Some locations might accommodate half-day shifts, at the discretion of the Judge of Elections. Half day shifts are as follows: 6AM-2PM or 2PM-9:30PM. Poll Workers are encouraged to bring their lunch/dinner, snacks and beverages as those will not be provided.
