Registering for the Online Poll Worker Training Program:

Election Judges are REQUIRED to complete the state issued election worker training.  We recommend that ALL election workers take BOTH the Poll Watcher course and the Online Poll Worker Training-ES&S Equipment course.  Please provide a certificate of completion to our office.

Poll Workers must self-register into the system by signing up for the course. To sign-up, they must select and enter a:

  • County Location or “City-School-Other Political Subdivisions”
  • First and Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Username
  • Password

Once registered, the poll worker will be prompted to login using their newly created user name and password, and will have immediate access to the training.

Remember, if your poll workers do not have an email address, they can create one using one of the free providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo, or Gmail.

Important Note: If you have ever been registered as an Administrator or a Student in the past, your old login name and password will no longer work. In this site, administrator rights are reserved for the Texas Secretary of State.

Should you have any questions about the Online Poll Worker Training, please email PollWorkerTraining@sos.texas.gov or call toll free at 1.800.252.8683.
