Election Worker Information
The City of Lowell's Election and Census Office employees approximately 225 poll workers per election, across our 11 Wards (containing 33 precincts). Each polling location is staffed with a minimum of six poll workers, including a Warden, a Clerk, and four Inspectors. Translators are also assigned to each polling location, based on need. All poll workers are paid, and subject to very specific rules/guidelines/policies.
We are always interested in hearing from prospective poll workers, that may be available for future elections! If you are interested in being a paid participant in our next election, please download, complete, sign and return the 2015/2016 Election Worker application as well as a completed Massachusetts M-4 tax form and a completed Federal W-4 tax form to the City of Lowell Election and Census Office either in person or via mail at:
