early voting

Be an Early Voting poll worker. 

Just like working on Election Day, except you get to spend seven days helping voters, instead of just one. You’ll be assigned to one location and work every other day, rotating positions in the polling place.  It’s a chance to earn more money, and the camaraderie that comes from working with your Early Voting team over a two-week period is priceless.  


September/October:  Training (5 hrs)
October: Polling place set-up, if available (2 hrs)
October 22 - November 4: Work every other Day (6 a.m. - approx 8 p.m.)

Earn $150 to $250/day, depending on the position.

Apply here.



Election prep

Be an Election Prep worker.

We’re a large county, so we need lots of people at our Elections Service Center on Falkenburg Road to help with logistical and organizational tasks. If you have a positive attitude, several weeks of time available and an interest in helping, this is the perfect opportunity to earn some extra money for a vacation or holiday gifts!


October - November 9:  Work daily (8 hrs/day)

Earn $15/hr.

Apply here.
