Poll Worker Interest Application

What happens after I submit an application to the Supervisor of Elections website?

A staff member from the Poll Worker Department will contact you to set up a brief interview. The interview will take approximately thirty (30) minutes, and will be conducted at the Lee County Elections Center, 13180 S. Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers.

If you are selected to work, you will be mailed a notice just prior to the election. The notice will indicate:

  • The date and time of your training class
  • The position you are assigned to work
  • The precinct you will be working in on Election Day

Florida state law requires each poll worker to attend a training class prior to each election. You must attend your scheduled training class, or you will not be permitted to work.

How much money will I earn?

Poll Workers are paid for their service. Wages start at $175, which includes compensation for attending your required training class.
