Poll Workers Needed In Burleigh County
Poll Workers Needed!
Not "Pole" workers, "Poll" workers. Get your mind out of the gutter!
I spoke to Erika White, an Election Manager for Burleigh County, she says this is an important role to take on.
"Poll workers are the backbone of our democracy. Successful elections happen when citizens are willing to staff the polls," said White.
The Primary Election is coming up on June 14th and Burleigh County is looking for people to staff the poll sites. Currently they need around 250 people to cover the 18 different sites.
How Does It Work?
They actually train you on how to be a poll worker prior to election day. That will take place on June 1st. Poll workers are required to help set up the polling location on election day, and they are asked to work the entire day.
You Get Paid!
The average pay for working the election is right around $250. Poll hours are from 7am to 7pm... not a bad deal!
What Are The Requirements?
It's pretty simple, really...
If you want to be an election worker, you have to meet these following requirements:
- Be a U.S. citizen
- Be at least 16 years of age
- Be a resident of Burleigh County
