Poll Workers

Poll workers are a very important part of the operation and administration of Town elections. We are always looking for additional people who would be willing to work at the polls for the elections. For some locations, we need substitute workers who can fill in when needed. For Presidential or larger elections, we need additional people. If you are interested and eligible to vote in the Town of Eaton, please contact Paulette Vogt, Town Clerk at 920.758-2720.
