WANTED:  POLL WORKERS

Who can be a poll worker?

Any registered voter in Meigs County who enjoys working with people.  Most Poll Workers are recommended by their party’s precinct committee member.

Why am I needed?

Without Poll Workers, elections cannot be held.

Poll Workers identify the voters as eligible, assist voters when necessary and assure that the election laws of the state are followed.

Do I need to declare my politics?

Yes.  Each precinct has an equal number of Democratic and Republican workers.  Independent voters may work for either party.

Where will I work?

Many public buildings such as churches, township halls and schools are used as polling locations.

You must be willing and able to go to any precinct.  Efforts are made to place you at a convenient location whenever possible.  You may be placed in your home precinct if there is a vacancy.

Will I be trained?

Yes.  All new workers are trained and renewal training is done every three years or when mandated by the Secretary of State.

What are the hours?

You will report to the polling place at 6:00 a.m. to help set up the precinct for voting.  The polls open at 6:30 a.m.  You will be given specific instructions for the duties assigned to you.  The instructions are complete and easy to understand.  You will be permitted 1 hour for lunch.  The polls close at 7:30 p.m.  All workers must stay to help close the precinct.

How much will I be paid?

The pay for a judge is $94.00 for the day; this includes the pay for attending the training class.  The Presiding Judge, the person responsible for picking up the supplies used on Election Day, receives $104.00 plus mileage; this also includes the pay for attending the training class.

Those interested may contact the Meigs County Board of Elections by calling (740) 992-2697, Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
