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.
Become A Poll Worker
We are always interested in hearing from prospective poll workers that may be available for future elections. The City pays poll workers $280 for working on Election Day and $20 for attending the training session. If a poll worker cannot work the full day we also pay an hourly rate, but this needs to be arranged with the Election Office prior to the election. We are also interested in poll workers who are interested in working Early Voting.
