which is at 6:00 AM and until 8:00 PM (the closing of the poll).

Mandatory Poll Worker Training
The Union County Board of Elections is migrating to new voting machines, the ExpressVote XL, in Berkeley Heights, Elizabeth, Fanwood, Garwood, Kenilworth, Mountainside, Union and Winfield in the Primary Election and training is mandatory for poll workers working in these towns.
Please see the training schedule below. You MUST attend at least one class. If you do not attend a class, you cannot work on Election Day.
We are offering multiple classes so you may attend more than one to familiarize yourself with the machine. We want you to be as comfortable as possible using the new machine and capable of assisting voters as necessary! Feel free to come to any of the classes which accommodate your schedule.
