What is the role of the Constable?

Election Day Constables work under the guidance of the Judge of Election and are responsible for preserving the peace and order at the polling location and ensuring that no qualified elector is obstructed from voting. Constables are also Elected, but they are not elected on the precinct level and do not fall under the purview of Voter Services. The Elected Constable must appoint the Election Day Constable through the Court of Common Pleas ahead of Election Day.
