Loudoun Electoral Board Seeks Election Officers
Paid Election Day work requires training; high students can work as pages.
The Loudoun County Electoral Board seeks several hundred new election officers to work the county’s 85 precincts on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Election officers receive $100 for their service, plus another $20 for a required training session. The Election Day work hours are 5 a.m. until all post-election paperwork is finished, usually between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m. Half-day shifts are available — from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from noon to completion — for those who cannot work the full day.
All election officers must attend a training session, most of which are set for the last week of September and the first week of October.
Anyone interested can do one of the following:
- Drop by the Voter Registration office, 750 Miller Drive SE, in Leesburg to sign up in person
- Find out more online and download the needed forms at www.loudoun.gov/electionofficers
- Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and daytime telephone number, and indicate that you are interested in serving as an election officer.
High school students 16 and older who wish to help can sign up to be election pages. Students are placed in precincts close to their homes and can work in pairs if they choose. Suggested hours are 5:45 a.m. to mid-morning and mid-afternoon to 7:30 p.m., but other schedules can be arranged. A short drop-in training session is required.
Election pages receive a Certificate of Appreciation and Letter of Recommendation from the Electoral Board, and their service may be applicable for classroom or merit-badge credit.
