Election workers needed
By Mary Mason
Workers earn $8 per hour, which includes training time. Workers attend a training session that is typically one hour prior to the election.
On election day, workers arrive at the polling location one hour prior to the polls opening. Workers are required to stay all day, through closing of the polls. A typical election day is 15-16 hours for the workers.
No special skills are required, though a friendly attitude is helpful.
Poll workers will need to declare a party, as assignments are made to keep a balance of Democrats and Republicans at each polling location.
