Election workers are needed as follows:
- To serve throughout the county
- Voters who speak multiple languages are needed. Voters who are fluent in both English and Spanish are especially needed in each polling place to meet the requirements of the 1975 Voting Rights Act which stipulates that bilingual Spanish speakers be available at the polling places
- Students 16 years old or older are eligible to register to vote and serve as election workers. Each minor must demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the Maryland State Board of Elections, that they meet all qualifications for registration in the State. Students serving as election workers may choose to earn 25 Student Service Learning (SSL) credits in lieu of the stipend
Training, which includes an online quiz, virtual training, and classroom in-person training, will be provided to all election workers. Volunteers will be paid for completing training and working the election. There are several different positions all-day and part day as advertised at www.77vote.org.
