Would you like to serve as an Election Commissioner?
- You must be a registered voter in Webster Parish
- You must not have been convicted of an election offense
- You must be able to vote without assistance
Commissioners must arrive at the polls by 5:30 AM for Tuesday elections and 6:30 AM for Saturday elections, and remain there until the polls close at 8:00 PM and all election duties have been completed.
To serve as a commissioner you must attend a training session and successfully complete an open book test. You would then be certified to work at the polls during the current term of the Clerk of Court.
Testing is held in Springhill and Minden each summer. Specific dates will be posted on the homepage of this site, on the Webster Parish Clerk of Court Facebook page, and advertised in local newspapers when they are scheduled. Contact the Clerk’s Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, to put your name on a mailing list for notice of upcoming certification classes.
Commissioner selection is performed by the Parish Board of Election Supervisors and made by random drawing. Certified commissioners are not guaranteed to work each election or guaranteed to work in their voting precinct.
Online Certification for Election Commissioners
Rather than attending a course in person, you may complete your training and test online. You must watch the training video below before taking the test. You may use the Election Day Pamphlet for reference. Commissioner-in-Charge testing is held annually in December and January. You must have worked 2 elections in the past 4 years to qualify to serve as a Commissioner in Charge and re-certify annually.
