Clerk White: Poll Worker Sign-Up Deadline Nears!

Wednesday, April 27 is the public deadline to register to work Election Day


INDIANAPOLIS – Marion County Clerk Beth White reminded voters today that the deadline for the general public to register to work the polls on Election Day is Wednesday, April 27.  

“While most of our poll worker positions are filled for the May 3 election, we’re always looking to involve new people in the process,” Clerk White said. “Now is a great time to sign up, learn the ropes and be involved not only this year but the upcoming presidential cycle, too.”

There are three main poll worker positions at each precinct: inspector, judge and clerk. The inspector manages the precinct and must work a full day. The judge and clerk represent the two major political parties at the precinct. Judges assist voters, while clerks receive voters and manage the poll book. Clerk and judge positions can work a half day. All positions are compensated.

State law requires poll workers to be a registered voter in the county where they would like to work and attend training. There are still several training sessions available for new inspectors, clerks and judges. To sign up or learn more, visit and use the online registration form, or call the Marion County Election Board at (317) 327-5100.
