Precinct Election Officials play a significant role in helping administer elections and are representatives of the Winnebago County Auditor's Office. PEOs should be available for the entire day, dress comfortably, and remain professional, fair, and impartial to all voters. Training will be provided. Job requirements include signing in voters, maintaining order at the polls, instructing voters on how to use the equipment, and transporting results to the County Auditor.
Hours required may vary between elections. We will generally try to schedule workers to work in their own precinct, but sometimes you may be asked to work in a different precinct. Precinct Election Officials always have the option to accept or decline the request to work an election.
