The Cleveland State University Viking Creed encourages students to make a positive impact on campus and in the community. Becoming an Ohio Election Day poll worker is one way you can make that impact.

Why YOU Should Sign Up to be an Ohio Election Day Poll Worker?

  • Earn Some Extra Money- Ohio election day poll workers earn between $140-$170 for a day's work.
  • Help Your Community- If not enough Ohioans sign up to serve as poll workers, communities will see less polling locations open on Election Day. By signing up to be a poll worker, you are helping ensure your community can keep all its polling locations open and accessible.
  • Networking and Resume Building- Being a poll worker is a great networking and resume building opportunity.
  • Democracy In Action- Ohio poll workers are able to see our democratic process in action and ensure its efficiency.
  • Make a Civic Contribution- Each Election Day, thousands of Ohioans dedicate themselves to sustaining and safeguarding our election process. As poll workers, you are helping to ensure a fair, safe, secure, and accurate election process for everyone.
