The pay isn’t great. The work is temporary and the hours long. And you’ll probably get noticed only if you mess up while performing this important civic duty.
The reward? Priceless – and the chance to be a tiny, tiny footnote in the election of a president.
Southwest Ohio county boards of elections need thousands of poll workers for the Nov. 6 election.
The job involves about a 15-hour day on Election Day, an organizational meeting the night before and, for some, a two- to three-hour training course in the weeks ahead.
For most people, the overall pay will add up to about $150, according to Amy Searcy, director of the Hamilton County Board of Elections.
Individuals interested in signing up may contact their respective elections board. Here’s the contact info for residents of Warren County:
