Washington County Board of Elections participates in a program endorsed by the Secretary of State entitiled 'Youth at the Booth'. Youth at the Booth gives students a real life civics lesson in the voting process at the same time it provides them with a meaningful community service activity. We encourage students to become involved. High School seniors who are age 17 or older will have the opportunity to participate as official poll workers, even if they are not 18 at the time of the election. They will be given a stipend for training and near minimum wage for serving as a poll worker election day. Read more key points of the program (PDF).
