Election workers are needed for the Nov. 3 General Election and the early voting period in October.
Early voting begins on Thursday, Oct. 15 and ends on Saturday, Oct. 31. Early voting workers must possess basic computer skills and will work in shifts on each early voting day. Early voting workers are paid an hourly rate for working during the early voting period.
On Nov. 3, polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. Workers will be required to assist with set-up of polling precincts on Nov. 2 and work from 5:30 a.m. until approximately 8:30 p.m. or later on Election Day. General Election workers are paid a flat rate for attending training, setting up their precinct, and working on Nov. 3.
Election workers must be Union County residents and a Union County registered voter (or become registered if eligible). Election workers cannot be a candidate or relative of a candidate on the ballot and must not be an elected government official, hold office with a political party, or be a treasurer for a candidate or political party.
If you’re looking for a way to fulfill your civic duty and make extra money, this is certainly a great way to do that. If interested, call the Union County Board of Elections at 704-283-3809 or send an email.
