Student Election Assistants

In 2003, the North Carolina General Assembly passed a law allowing high school students to work in the polls on election day. Student Election Assistants carry some of the same responsibilities as election officials, and are compensated in the same way.
To qualify, the applicant must be a U.S. citizen who will be at least 17 years old by election day and who resides in the precinct where they wish to serve. Applicants must be in good academic standing with the school where they are enrolled (including public, private and home schools). They must also have permission from a parent (or guardian/legal custodian) and from their school principal/director.
Contact your local County Board of Elections office for more information.  
To apply, download the application here and mail it to your County Board of Elections office.
