Student Election Workers
Legislation passed on September 1, 2009 allows students 16 years or older to serve as election clerks. According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, the purpose of this legislation is two-fold:

1. Introduces students to the electoral process and inspires them to take an interest in their government
2. Provides election authorities with an additional reservoir of persons who can serve at the polls

Eligible students must be:
  • A U.S. Citizen and resident of Williamson County
  • 16 years or older on Election Day
  • Enrolled in school (public, private or qualified home school) with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Have the written consent of a parent or guardian to participate
The Texas Education Code includes service as an election clerk as an acceptable “excused absence”. 
 
If you are interested please complete the Student Worker Application and return it to the Elections Department.
Once you are assigned you must complete the State Application and Permission Form and take it with you to the polling place.

The Williamson County Elections Department encourages all eligible students with an interest in the democratic process to apply. Bilingual students are strongly urged to apply, as an increasing demand for these services exists.

Any student working will receive the clerk’s pay of $10 per hour ($8/hr in Primary)
