By clicking on the Continue button below, I certify that the foregoing answers are true, that I have read and understand the foregoing, that I have no physical disabilities that would hinder my performance at the polls, that I am now a registered voter in this County and I can read and write the English language as required by Florida State Law.

Please note: After completing this application and the orientation process, you will become part of our pool of prospective poll workers. Your name will remain active until you request that it be removed. Not all poll workers work every election. The number of poll workers for each election is determined by the size of the election and the expected turnout. Poll workers are chosen to work a specific election by their availability, willingness to travel, and the number of workers needed. While we like to keep an election board constant throughout an election cycle, this often cannot be done.
