On Election Day, Fairfax County needs Election Officers at each poll representing the Democratic Party. This is different from our poll workers who volunteer outside the polls. Our Election Officers are public officials working on the front lines at the polls, performing the operations of the polling places and making sure that every eligible voter is able to have their vote cast and counted. Any registered voter in Virginia can serve as an Election Officer for Fairfax County. If you would like to serve, please fill out your information on the form linked below and we will be in contact with you.
