Adopt A Precinct
Adopt a Precinct is a partnership between the Supervisor of Elections and Community Service Organizations, Clubs and Nonprofit Organizations.
What is the Adopt A Precinct Program?
Adopt A Precinct is a way for the Supervisor of Elections to recruit poll workers; for community service organizations, clubs and nonprofit organization to raise funds; and for voters in our county to receive excellent Election Day services.
Steps to Adopt A Precinct?
- The community service organization, club or nonprofit agrees to provide a certain number of poll workers for Election Day.
- The elections office will train the poll workers (as required by state law), and assigns them to a polling site.
- The recruited poll worker (volunteer) designates their paid salary to their organization. After the election, the partnering organization receives a check in the amount equal to what your volunteers have earned as poll workers.
- The pollworker may also earn community service merits or points with your organization/club, along with the money you have earned, which will be donated to your organization/club.
NOTE: The partnering organization can display a sign at the polling place that tells voters your organization has adopted the precinct so the voters know of your good deeds.
