ELECTION DAY PARTICIPATION PROGRAM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Would you like to learn more about the electoral process and earn service learning hours?

The Director of Elections/General Registrar and the Carroll County Electoral Board encourage you to become an election page for our upcoming elections.

 AS AN ELECTION PAGE, YOU WILL...

  • Serve a 2-hour shift (or more if you wish) in a Carroll County polling place under the direct supervision of the Chief Election Officer.
  • Arrive on time and remain at the polling place during your assigned shift.
  • Serve in a wholly Non-Partisan manner (no discussion of politics, candidates, or issues).
  • Dress appropriately (no jeans, shorts, sweats, or T-shirts).
  • Utilize appropriate professional language and behavior at all times.

 RECOGNITION

In recognition of service provided, you will be sent a "Certificate of Appreciation" following the election. The government teachers at your school will be provided with a list of participants who served on Election Day, so you will receive service credit, if offered.

 WHERE WILL I BE WORKING?

Whenever possible, you will be assigned to your closest or "home" precinct. However, if there are no vacancies at your polling place, you may be assigned to a nearby precinct.  The Director of Elections/General Registrar will meet with interested students and provide instructions on the duties you will perform on Election Day.
