Poll Commissioners

Each election, the clerk of court’s elections department must staff and manage various polling locations in neighborhoods throughout Jefferson Parish.  This requires the work and commitment of nearly 1,400 election commissioners who must be trained to manage the complexities of the voting process.

Election commissioners are essential to the success of any election, but in Jefferson Parish there are never enough capable, committed residents willing to do their civic duty and work as a Poll Worker on Election Day.  It is vital that more citizens participate in the electoral process at the precinct level.

Elections cannot be successful without active citizen participation.  The elections department encourages all citizens of Jefferson Parish to get involved in making sure YOUR elections are run as effectively and efficiently as possible.

 To be an election commissioner, one must:

  • Be a registered voter who does not require assistance in voting;
  • Not have been convicted of an election offense enumerated in Chapter 10, Title 18 Louisiana Revised Statutes;
  • Attend a training course and pass a test.

An election commissioner receives:

  • A stipend of $200.00;
  • A great opportunity to support his/her community;
  • CONFIDENCE THAT HE/SHE IS MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN JEFFERSON PARISH.

For information please contact Brian Freese, Elections Department Supervisor, at 736-6394. Your parish is counting on you!
