The number of high school students volunteering has doubled in recent years in Orange County growing to over 2,000.
High school student poll workers represent one-third of the total number of poll workers in a countywide election.
The delivery of the voting systems to the approximately 1,300 polling places cannot begin until 10 days before an election.
There are over 50 items used in a polling place that must be designed, purchased, inventoried. They are carefully packed in the supply box and proofed three times prior to delivery to the poll workers.
Thousands of phone calls are received by up to 18 Customer Service Representatives staffing our Poll Worker Customer Service Line providing answers to any question a poll worker might have about their service including where they will be working, scheduling a training class and more.
The number of candidate assisted at the front desk prior to primary and general elections is approximately 300.
The County of Orange typically hires 15 – 20 trainers to teach 300 Poll Worker Training classes prior to a countywide election.
Approximately 1,000 volunteers generally receive their Poll Worker Training online with the use of a tutorial.
The Registrar of Voters receives anywhere from five to 20 petitions a year.
The number of signatures checked for petitions ranges from 1,500 to 15,000.
