The Douglas County Elections Office generally operates about 60 polling locations which serve the citizens of Douglas County. A minimum of three election board workers is assigned to each precinct; one Supervising Judge and two Election Board workers. During large elections—or in some larger precincts—more board workers may be assigned to help assist voters. The election office is responsible for administering general, city-school, and special elections for Douglas County
Poll Workers are required to complete an Election Worker Application. Each new poll worker is required to attend a new poll worker training class which covers all the basics of operating a polling location. Experienced poll workers are required to attend a refresher training prior to each election they plan to work. One-on-one training with the voting equipment is offered at the Douglas County Courthouse. A complete training schedule is mailed to all poll workers prior to each election. All poll workers are compensated for their training and for their dedicated service on Election Day.
Poll Workers are the unsung heroes and heroines of the elections process - they make our democracy work, and they make it the very best it can be.
