Poll workers wanted
October 3, 2008
The Summit County Clerk’s Office continues to search for people to serve as poll workers in November.
An official in the Clerk’s Office said midweek 53 people had signed up to work at polling places on Election Day. Ryan Cowley, the chief deputy clerk, said Summit County needs about 100 people to serve as poll workers.
Poll workers check people in as they prepare to vote, they create voter-access cards, which are used in the touch-screen voting machines, and they could assist voters if they ask for help in understanding the voting system.
Poll workers must be a registered voter and 18 years old or older on Election Day. They can work in precincts outside the one where they reside.
The Clerk’s Office needs workers from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m., and they must attend a one-hour training session — Oct. 13 in Park City and Oct. 14 in North Summit and South Summit.
Pay is $10 per hour, and lunch is provided.
