Every election day, hundreds of Logan County voters contribute to our communities by helping to operate polling places. Logan County’s poll workers (precinct election officials) help safeguard our election process. Many poll workers find their experience rewarding and return to serve year after year.
Logan County needs more poll workers. If you choose to work at a poll, you will receive training and be paid for your time. In Logan County, you start out as a substitute then move into a permanent assignment as an opening arises.
