- How to Become an Election Worker in Louisiana
This page describes how you can become an election worker and earn a paycheck while serving our community. Louisiana is expecting a shortage in election workers this year due to COVID-19. Please note in order to volunteer there is a process that can take a couple of weeks. If you are interested in serving as an election worker, it is recommended that you start this process soon.
We also suggest that you download the GeauxVote mobile phone app, which is very user-friendly and provides voter registration information, voting locations, sample ballots and voter district information.
For those of you who may have established residency outside of Louisiana, the Vote.gov web site is a tremendous tool to assist you in finding registration information and voting instructions for each state in the U.S.
We strongly encourage you to visit these sites as soon as you can and make a commitment to voting this fall and in future elections!
