Primary Election May 10, 2022

Running an election takes a lot of time and people.  We are always in need of poll workers.  Without our poll workers, we would not be able to have polling places throughout the county.  If you would like to become a poll worker, please contact the election clerk at 402.821.3922 or by emailing election@salinecountyne.us.  If you are over 18, you do have to be a registered voter in Saline County to be a poll worker.  If you are over 16, you can also help with the election as a poll worker.  You do not have to work all day at the polls.  We appreciate anyone wanting to come work for any amount of time.   Being a poll worker is a paid position.  When contacting us, we will need your name, address and phone number to get started.  There will be a training period all poll workers are required to attend before they can work at the polls.  We are excited to have you join us!
