To provide in-person help for voters with questions about the upcoming June 2nd Presidential Primary, the Union County Board of Elections is holding a series of public outreach sessions at convenient locations throughout the county in March, April, and May.

Election Board staff will be available at each location to answer questions and demonstrate new voting machines that were introduced countywide in 2019. Visitors to the public outreach sessions can also register to vote and declare their party affiliation during their visit.

Residents seeking to help on Election Day by becoming a poll worker can apply for a position at any of the outreach sessions. No experience is needed to be a poll worker. Mandatory free training is provided and the position includes a stipend of $200 for working on Election Day.
