Election Inspector classes are currently on hold. We plan to schedule classes during the summer. Please check back regularly for updates

We are in need of Election Inspectors for the 2020 Election Season.  If interested, please call 315-435-3331.

Election Inspectors

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 its leaders.

Election Inspectors are paid $190 to work in the Primaries and General Elections. The required working hours are from approximately 5:00AM to 9:30 PM. 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 be paid $25.

Please include a telephone number where you can be reached during the day so that we can contact you for some basic information, and schedule you in the training class you prefer.
