Poll Worker Qualifications:
Poll Workers are an important component of the election process. They are the front-line representative of this process. Most citizens never interact with any Election Official other than the Poll Worker. Because of this, the need for quality, dedicated people is paramount. Simply put, the election process would be impossible without a strong base of Poll Workers. Currently, Autauga County has over 190 trained Poll Workers, including 20 seasoned Inspectors.

The polls close at 7:00 p.m. After everyone in line at 7:00 p.m. has completed the voting process, Poll Workers will complete reports, package materials and prepare everything for return to the Autauga County Probate Office.
