Precinct Officials Certification Course

In today's political climate it has become increasingly important for election officials to be knowledgeable in election laws and the procedures used in polling places.  The laws that govern the voting process are complicated and can be confusing.  A recently developed course will expand the knowledge of precinct officials and result in a certification.

Elections Process and Precinct Officials Certification is offered by the Carteret County Board of Elections and Carteret Community College.  During this eighteen hour course participants will learn about North Carolina election laws, election planning, and procedures used in the polling place.  The course is designed for current and prospective poll workers, in addition to concerned citizens desiring more information about the election system.  An exam must be successfully completed for certification.  Certified election officials will be paid an additional $25 per election.

The course fee is $70 and includes all instructional material.
