What is an Election Worker?

An election worker is an essential component to every polling place location on Election Day. There are two different types of election workers: Inspectors and Clerks. While Inspectors serve as supervisors for the polling locations, Clerks assist with a variety of conventional tasks. Both are paid a stipend for their time. Polling place locations typically staff four to six election workers on Election Day.
