We are looking for citizens to serve as poll workers for the April 7, 2020 election. Many of our veteran poll workers have to sit this one out, so we need more residents to step up!
If you are interested, send me a message with “Poll Worker ” in the subject line, a few words about your interest and your contact information! Poll workers earn $9 an hour.
To be a poll worker, a person must:
- Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the election district for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote)
- Be able to read and write fluently in the English language
- NOT be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.
Poll workers do everything from check-in voters, help people register to vote, check photo IDs and process absentee ballots. We typically have a morning shift and an evening shift.
I will provide you with training prior to election day for the job you will be doing.
This is a great opportunity for high school (age 16 or older) and college students to get involved with the democratic process!
Village Staff is doing everything we can to ensure the safety of all its residents during this process and is following all necessary guidelines and implementing as many safety measures as possible. Our goal is for each eligible voter to be able to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted.
