Poll Workers

The Clerk of Court is responsible for recruiting, training and providing certified election commissioners for each election in our parish. An election commissioner's work enables thousands of citizens to exercise their right to vote. In St. Tammany, adequate staffing for busy parish-wide elections requires the work and commitment of almost 800 election commissioners.


To be eligible to become a certified polling commissioner, one must:
   - be a registered voter in St. Tammany Parish or a 17 year-old U.S. citizen enrolled in 12th grade     - not be entitled to assistance in voting    - not have been convicted of an election offense    - not be a law enforcement officer

The responsibilities of a commissioner include:    - successfully having completed a general course of instruction       once every four years    - attending a specific class prior to the election, if required       by law    - setting up and operating voting machines    - identifying voters, determining ballot selection, and       handling all necessary election paperwork    - enforcement of election laws    - counting and tabulation of votes

Compensation for certified commissioners is as follows:

   - $200.00 per election day for commissioners    - $250.00 per election day for commissioners-in-charge
Certified election commissioners may have the opportunity to work the following dates for regular elections in 2014 and 2015:

2014:April 5May 3November 4December 6
2015:March 28May 2October 24November 21
