If you are currently attending High School and looking to serve your community, the Trumbull County Board of Elections is seeking responsible students to work as Poll Workers.
High School Student Workers have been a wonderful part of Trumbull County Elections dating back several years. Being a Poll Worker includes hard work, many hours, and the ability to work well with the public as well as with the other Poll Workers, who are quite often Senior Citizens.
Being a Poll Worker provides a hands-on experience of our democracy in action and an opportunity to earn quite a bit of money for a hard earned days’ work. We hope that by participating in the voting process, our young adults will understand the importance of exercising their voting rights for years to come.
