What are the hours of work on Election Day?

All poll workers must report to their assigned polling place by 6:00am on Election Day and remain on duty until the polls have closed and all paperwork is completed.  The poll manager and one assistant manager must accompany ballots and memory cards back to the Carroll County Elections office after all the poll activities have been completed.  All poll workers should anticipate a minimum 14 hour day, which may include a lot of standing or sitting in one position.
