Thank you for showing interest in being a Poll Worker for the City of Brookfield. 

To be a poll worker, a person must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be 18 years old (except high school student poll workers)
  • Be able to read and write fluently in the English language
  • NOT be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election

To get on the poll worker availability email listing, please fill out the Poll Worker Interest Form. This form does not guarantee a poll worker position. The Clerk will reach out for an interview. Upon hire, you will be required to fill out standard employment paperwork including an application. Review the letter to applicants, job description, and employment application

For a thorough overview of poll worker information from the State, you can visit the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) website for Poll Workers

Per the WEC, we are able to offer online training if you are not able to make it in person. We encourage in-person attendance but understand schedules may vary. If you opt into online training, please have the training completed prior to the Friday before the election. The hours you certify will go towards your yearly training quota. Complete the Certification of Training Hours form and return it to the Clerk either via email, regular mail, or in person. The City's minimum number of hours requested for each election is one (1) hour.
