Delaware County Looking for Election Volunteers!

 Home / Elections / Elections News / Delaware County Looking for Election Volunteers!


The General Election is Tuesday, November 3. We have a lot of tasks to cover to ensure a safe and secure election and could use your help!

We are looking for residents who can assist our Election Office in the Wharf Building (2501 Seaport Drive, Chester, PA 19013), the Voting Machines Warehouse (403 East 24th Street, Chester, PA 19013) and at five different locations where our Poll Workers will pick up and drop off election materials.

Our goal is to have County employees, paid seasonal employees and volunteers helping with this year’s General Election. We need a great deal of help for this election so please consider what doing what you can do to help the County achieve a successful, safe and secure election.

Please read the job descriptions posted on the front page of each Sign-Up Genius for more information. Some roles do require training.

Shifts and job descriptions vary but we will start as early as 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 31, and as early as 5:30 a.m. on Election Day, November 3, and work throughout the night to the early hours of November 4. You may sign up for multiple jobs, however, please be mindful of the different start and stop times so we do not have gaps in coverage.

Please note, Court employees and Civil Service employees are NOT eligible to help with election related activities. Delaware County employees should check with your supervisor if you have any questions before you sign up.

COVID Precautions

All people helping with elections task are required to wear masks while working

Security will take temperatures as people come into the buildings

Hand sanitizer, spray and wipes will be readily available, and we encourage people to use them often

These precautions are being taken to ensure election workers and the public are protected as much as possible, however some people working on election day may be sharing office space. Election Day workers must be comfortable sitting in a cubicle or workspace with other people sharing the floor.

Election Work is Non-Partisan

Delaware County Election Day activities are non-partisan. You are NOT permitted to wear clothing, buttons or face masks advertising a particular party or candidate. We also ask that you moderate your conversations so that we can focus on our service to the County rather than topics that may be perceived as partisan.

You will NOT be able to work/volunteer on this project if you are an elected official or paid staff member for a candidate, political party or committee.
