Get Involved On Election Day

On Election Day, thousands of Ohioans play an important role in our democracy by helping to operate neighborhood polling places. Ohio’s precinct election officials (P.E.O.s) work hard to ensure their neighbors have a positive experience when casting a ballot. These volunteers help safeguard the process so all Ohioans can have confidence in the results. Join us on the front lines of democracy and exercise your civic duty by signing up to be a poll worker today.

You can earn well over $100 for your day as a pollworker and the bonus is all the great people you get to meet!

If you or someone you know is interested contact Karrie at the Ashtabula County Board of Elections by calling (440) 576-6925 or email
