Every election, be it a special election for cities or schools, a primary for the nominating process, or a general election for President, Franklin County uses the services of election workers to help make the election process run smoothly.
Board Worker - This is a workforce of usually 20 to 24 people depending on the size of the election and level of voter participation. Board workers open mail ballots after signatures have been verified. They check for write-in candidates and torn or damaged ballots. They make sure the ballots are placed in the correct batches and precincts. Work begins 18 days before the Election and continues intermittently up to 15 to 21 days after an election. In most cases, they work 5 hours a day but can be required to work evenings and weekends. All work is performed at the Franklin County Election Center located at 116 N 3rd Avenue in Pasco.
