How long do I work on Election Day?

Officers must arrive by 5:00am to open the poll by 6:00am.  The polls close at 7:00pm but officers must remain to close equipment, report results, complete paperwork, and clean up the polling places.  In most elections, officers are done their duties by approximately 8:30pm, but it can depend on several factors including if voters are still in line to vote at 7:00pm.  All voters in line by that time can still vote.  Officers are not permitted to leave and return to the polling place during the day.
