Jackson Parish Clerk of Court


Poll Workers' School

General Commissioner training classes for anyone interested in being certified as a commissioner to work at the election polls for the next four years are offered at various times throughout the year.

Continue watching for ads in the Jackson Independent and the Independent Shopper for upcoming training courses.

Basic Qualifications:

  • You must be a registered voter of Jackson Parish who does not require assistance in voting.
  • You must not have been convicted of an election offense.
  • Those who attend this school in its entirety and pass the open-book exam will be issued a certificate. Their names will be placed on the list of qualified commissioners for Jackson Parish and they will be eligible to be selected to work at the polls in Jackson Parish until the end of the Clerk of Court's current term.

Thanks to our legislatures, Act 297 increased the pay for certified commissioners to $200 per election!
