The City of Lowell's Election and Census Office employees approximately 225 poll workers per election, across our 11 Wards (containing 33 precincts). Each polling location is staffed with a minimum of six poll workers, including a Warden, a Clerk, and four Inspectors. Translators are also assigned to each polling location, based on need. All poll workers are paid, and subject to very specific rules/guidelines/policies.
