The Douglas County Elections Office generally operates about 60 polling locations which serve the citizens of Douglas County. A minimum of three election board workers is assigned to each precinct; one Supervising Judge and two Election Board workers. During large elections—or in some larger precincts—more board workers may be assigned to help assist voters. The election office is responsible for administering general, city-school, and special elections for Douglas County.
We are perpetually looking for civic-minded individuals to serve as election workers. The largest challenge facing election officers throughout the country is the successful recruitment of volunteers to properly administer and monitor the electoral process. Other issues may garner more media attention, but recruiting and retaining quality election workers, we believe, is the critical factor in assuring an accurate and fair election.
