Poll Worker Tracker
In an effort to continue providing voters with unprecedented levels of transparency, Secretary LaRose is providing Ohioans with weekly poll worker updates as reported by the 88 county boards of elections. This is the first time such information has been collected from the counties prior to an election. Below you will find a breakdown of poll workers required by each county as determined by each county board of elections.
The total number of poll workers needed consists of the minimum number required to run an election in the respective county. The goal column is the target number of poll workers counties should recruit in order to compensate for any cancellations or no-shows. In accordance with state law, the board of elections, by a majority vote, appoints four electors for each precinct who are residents of the county in which the precinct is located to serve as poll workers. Not more than one-half of the total number of poll workers assigned to a precinct may be members of the same political Party. Ohioans who are neither a Republican or Democrat may also serve as poll workers. Those individuals are recorded below in the “other” category.
