Do I really have to work all day?

Yes, you have to work all day!  Poll workers must be sworn in at the beginning of each Election Day.  Once you have been sworn in at the polling place, you are not allowed to leave until all Election Day activities have been completed.  If a poll worker must leave during the Election Day due to illness or emergency, their pay will be prorated to the number of hours worked.
