Election: Fall, 2008
Poll worker training
Training not required by law
There are no statutes or administrative regulations requiring poll worker training in Washington. Rather, the matter is left up to the discretion of local administrators. In Pierce County, poll workers must be available to attend 3 mandatory training sessions (see here), and they must attend one 3- to 7-hour training in King County (see here). The rest of Washington's 39 counties conduct elections entirely by mail and have no need of poll workers.
King County will switch to all-mail elections in 2009.
