Fairfax County Seeks Election Officers for June, November

The Virginia primary is June 11; the general election is Nov. 5.

Are you a registered voter in Virginia and available to work at least half of Election Day?

Fairfax County has a job for you. The county’s Office of Elections is recruiting election officers for the June 11 primary election and/or for the Nov. 5 general election. Qualified residents with bilingual language and technology skills are especially needed.

"We encourage all qualified residents to become elections officers, especially those with technology skills, diverse language abilities, young adults seeking civic experience and networking opportunities, and recently retired professionals interested in public service," said General Registrar Cameron Quinn in a prepared statement.

Election officers are paid $100 for working all of Election Day (approximately 15 hours); $50 for a half day (approximately 8 hours). Each election officer is required to attend a one-time training class.

For the primary election, training sessions are scheduled for May and June. There are three ways to apply to become an election officer:

Mail: Fill out and return the application form.

Email: Include full name, current address, daytime telephone number and your date of birth. This information is necessary in order to verify your voter registration.

Call: 703-324-4735, TTY 711, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
