What is a Pollworker?
A pollworker is an essential component to every polling place location on Election Day. There are two different types of pollworkers: Inspectors and Clerks. While Inspectors serve as supervisors for the polling locations, Clerks assist with a variety of conventional tasks. Both are paid a stipend for their time.
