Student Poll Worker Program

California Elections Code section 12302 allows eligible students to be appointed as poll workers on Election Day.

As poll workers, students learn first hand the importance of participating in the electoral process. In addition, they provide much needed support at polling place locations.

In order to eligible to be appointed as a poll worker, a student must be:
A United States citizen;
At least 16 years of age at the time of the election in which he or she will be serving;
A high school student with a grade point average of at least 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale);
A student in good standing, attending a public or private secondary educational institution.

In addition to gaining experience in the electoral process, students can also earn stipends.
