Why Not Be a Poll Worker?

Have you ever thought about what you can do to help out in a special way? Do you care about our democratic process? And would you like to learn more about our election process?

Well, why not volunteer to become a poll worker? This may be an opportunity that you don’t want to pass up. Check out what I just got in my inbox from OCYD.

Volunteer to Be a Poll Worker on Election Day

The Orange County Registrar’s Office is looking for volunteer poll workers for the June Primary. Volunteers can choose between two types of positions: inspectors and clerks. Primary leadership duties for inspectors include making reminder calls to clerks the week before the election, overseeing set up of the precinct before polls open, deciding when clerks can take lunch and other breaks. Poll workers are volunteers and receive a stipend of $75 a day for clerks and $100 a day for inspectors. Both clerks and inspectors will receive an additional $20 for attending our mandatory training class. If you are interested or have any questions please contact Marika.Csapo@rov.ocgov.com. You must be a registered voter to volunteer.

    I find working at the polls to be exciting and rewarding, even though the stipends are not very much considering you are up at 6am and finish around 10pm. New York state pays $200 to their poll workers.

    Beside getting to learn about the safeguards used to protect the votes, paper and electronic. You get to meet face to face all the voters who vote at your polling place.

    And you never know who will show up. Elected officials, tv news, out of state vip’s, every election is a bit different.
