Election Officers Needed for Primary Election in Vienna, McLean and Falls Church

Fairfax County is looking for election officers for the June 11 Democratic primary election.

The Fairfax County Office of Elections needs officers to serve in parts of Falls Church, Vienna and McLean.

Officers will be paid $175 for a full day or they can volunteer their time.

Registered Virginia voters can sign up online, call 703-324-4735, TTY 711 or email [email protected]. Before they can work at polling locations, election officers must complete a three-hour training. Training classes will be offered through late May.

Bilingual election officers who can speak Korean or Vietnamese, in addition to English, are also needed, especially in Falls Church.

On election day, officers will arrive at the polling place at 5 a.m. before the polls open at 6 a.m. and stay about an hour after polls close at 7 p.m. to help tally votes and pack up equipment.

Some of the officers’ responsibilities throughout the day might include helping voters with voting machines, monitoring phone lines, putting up signs, answering questions and checking in voters, according to a Fairfax County Government video. “Experienced election officers will be on hand to help or handle tricky situations,” the video says.
