2024 is an Election Year

By Jacquie Bokow

Yes, elections are happening next year.  The Montgomery County Board of Elections is always in need of volunteers.  Working at the elections is fun and rewarding — and you get paid!  People who speak Spanish are particularly needed.

Working the Upcoming Elections

Recruitment of Election Workers for the 2024 election cycle begins in January.  All former volunteers will be contacted at that time via email.  If you’d like to sign up to serve as an Election Worker, visit or call Recruiter Deborah Hamer at 240.777.8571.  In-person training for the Primary Election begins 12 February 2024, so don’t wait to sign up.  You get paid for both in-person training and the actual election day.  (The sooner you sign up, the more likely you can get a spot at local classes at Wheaton Public Library or other nearby locations instead of having to go to BOE HQ in Gaithersburg.)



Since our neighborhood and county are heavily Democratic, workers affiliated with other political parties (or unaffiliated) are needed, so please consider volunteering if you are registered as a Republican or a member of some other party, or unaffiliated.

Higher Pay Begins Next Year

New Election Worker pay rates for the service stipend will begin with the 2024 Election Cycle.  Most full-day positions — for example, Voter Operations worker (VOP), Provisional worker (VOP-P), or Same-Day Registration worker (SDR) — can earn $250 for their service plus $50 for training.  Additionally, returning Election Workers who previously served at a polling place during early voting or Election Day will earn $100 extra each full day of service during early voting and/or election day in the 2024 election cycle.  For more information on position requirements, duties, and service hours, visit the link below:
