Election Officer Pin Collection


One of the traditions established in 1998 by the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division is to give every Election Officer that serves in an election a commemorative election pin. Each election has its own distinctive pin.  Some of our Election Officers have earned the entire collection (see the collection).


If you would like to serve as a Election Officer, you can sign up online. We need the help. You can serve the community and build your own election pin collection.
