Election Day means over two thousand people will work at schools, churches, and other facilities processing voters so that we can conduct a fair election, as perfect as possible. It is a long day but it is very rewarding to know you have helped your community choose it's leaders.
Election Inspectors are paid $190 to work in the November General Election from 5:30 AM to 9:30 PM. In a Primary, the hours are from 11:30AM to 9:30 PM and the pay is $140. You MUST be registered in either the Democratic or Republican parties, be able to speak, read and write English, (bilingual inspectors, especially Spanish speakers, are very welcome) and you must be available to work the entire shift- we cannot split shifts.
As an Election Inspector you will be required to complete a 3 hour class on the processes and procedures related to being an inspector, followed by a mandatory written test. Persons who successfully complete the test will have $25 added to their election inspector pay the first time they work at the polls.
