Some team members also help create and monitor social media content and voter outreach for the office. Responsibilities of team members will differ between quieter times, peak early voting times, and election day.

    The Operations Team are the quiet heroes in elections administration.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience alongside a multi-talented Voting Operations team who not only specialize in maintaining voting equipment but also in building customized furniture, designing computer applications, performing skilled maintenance, and assuring facility security protocols.

    This team gives many citizens their first impression of the office—by providing outstanding customer service in person, via email, and on the phone. Attention to detail and commitment to accurate data entry are essential in assuring the voting public can easily and confidently cast their vote during elections.

    Duties include:

  • Processing voter registration updates
  • Answering a multi-line phone system

  • Using computers to access voter registration and election records
  • Scanning documents

Overtime is always required during early voting periods and on election day. Professionalism in appearance and conduct is of utmost importance.

    These customer service and data processing rock stars make sure individual voters have what they need to be ready to vote when it’s time to cast their ballot. A great team for anyone who is passionate about accessible elections, loves working with people, has a meticulous eye for detail, and is intrigued by the laws and procedures for the voter registration process.

    We are proud to offer 10 locations throughout Leon County that are open for voting for between 9 and 14 days prior to each election. That means we also need a lot of workers to staff these “pop-up” offices in the brief time that they are open for voting.

    These workers complete a brief but comprehensive training session and then complete a multi-day assignment for each election. They are paid lump sum for all their training and work shortly following each election. Full-time and part-time shifts are available, and full-timers will be required to work long days and weekends to provide coverage at the sites. Time-and-a-half is paid for any hours over 40 worked in a week. Enrollment in the Florida Retirement System is not included, and health insurance is only rarely available for these positions. While it’s preferred for someone to be available to work all of the elections in a given calendar year, it is not required.

    Each early voting site has its own dynamics. Early Voting Workers must be able to provide accurate and friendly customer service, be meticulous with details, and able to handle large rushes of voters as well as long stretches without much activity. Standing for long periods and working outdoors is required.

    This team is right at the heart of the action—at the ballot box—and provides the only personal connection many voters ever have with the office. The main ingredients for this team are positivity, helpfulness, patience, accuracy, and a passion for democracy.

    Hundreds of poll workers are assigned to work at polling locations throughout the county on each election day. They are required to also complete a brief but comprehensive training program prior to each election.

    Please note: Anyone hired to fill a seasonal support position with the office would not be able to work as a poll worker on election day, as they will be busy with many other behind the scenes duties that day.
