Officers of Election Needed

The Northumberland County Electoral Board is seeking county residents who are interested in working at county polling places on Election Day.

There are about 50 residents currently serving as Officers of Election throughout the county. Electoral Board members recently noted more Officers of Election are needed, and reserve officers who may be called on short notice in case of emergency are in short supply. Officers are appointed for a term of one to two years, but many times continue to serve for many years. When appointed, each officer takes an oath of office to impartially carry out the duties as an officer of election. The Electoral Board conducts training sessions usually a week or two prior to Election Day, which all officers are required to attend.

Citizens who wish to serve must be registered to vote in Northumberland County, and cannot hold any elected office or be the deputy of any elected government official.

Officers are compensated for Election Day.

Please help us to serve the voters of Northumberland County. Individuals who are interested in serving should contact the Northumberland County Electoral Board by phone at 804-580-4655, by email at
