7/19/2016 - Apply to Work at the 2016 Election

Those interested in being appointed as a pollworker at the November 8th, 2016 election can now sign up to work online.

Serving as a pollworker is a rewarding experience that gives residents the opportunity to participate in an historic election event, assisting our community by ensuring that the voting experience is fast, professional, and enjoyable for all Fairfield citizens.

Pollworkers must either be registered voters in Connecticut, or (for certain positions) 16- or 17- year olds. Each pollworker will be required to attend a pre-election training class, and will be paid a stipend for their service based on the time and position worked. Pollworkers must be comfortable performing their duties in a strictly nonpartisan manner, and are prohibited from performing services for any candidates or political parties on the day of the election.
