Social Security Number
Signature of poll workers on the Statement of Compensation Form
Completed W-4 form (if they have never worked for Fort Bend County)
Completed HR Form
What are election supplies?
Orange Bag (signs)
Blue bag (cell phone, charger, and passwords)
Where do I pick up the required keys?
Keys are distributed at the Election Law classes held at the Rosenberg Annex. You may sign in 1/2 hour before the scheduled start of your class.
Who picks up the election supplies?
All supplies are now delivered to each polling place in a steel security cabinet. The election judge will pick up the bag containing a cell phone and keys to the cabinet at the Election Law class. If he/she is unavailable to pick up the keys, the election judge must inform the Elections Department by email or phone 48 hours prior to equipment pickup. The email address to send your response is firstname.lastname@example.org. Or the phone number to call is 281-341-8670.
What is the requirement to get paid for taking the class?
You will get paid for the class if you work the election. If you do not work the election, you will not get paid. The definition of “working an election” is working a minimum of 4 hours in the upcoming election.
