Every Election, the Chatham County Board of Elections seeks to find Election Officials to man the election voting stations.  Each Election voting site is staffed with a Chief Judge, two Party Judges and a number of assistants.  Generally the Chief and the Party Judges names are submitted by the parties and appointed by the Chatham County Board of Elections. However, in each election, we need additional persons to work at the polling places.

All Election Officials are required to attend training for each election.  You will be compensated for work on Election Day and for training.

The Student Election Assistant Program allows for students that meet certain requirements to serve as assistants in both Primary and General Elections.
