SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY (July 21, 2015) – Poll Workers are needed throughout Sullivan County to help conduct 2015 elections.
If you are interested in working at the polls on Primary Day – Thursday September 10 and/or Election Day – Tuesday November 3, you must complete a 2.5 hour training session (for which you will be paid $25) and pass a (relatively easy) certification exam.
Upon successful completion of the training you will be eligible to work all locally conducted elections – Town, County, State and Federal, as well as Fire District, Library and School Board elections.
In order to serve you must be at least 17 years of age, a resident and a registered voter of Sullivan County and fluent in written and spoken English.
Qualified poll workers are paid $12 per hour for each election day of approximately 10 to 16 hours. In addition they have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to the democratic process while serving their community.
Se habla espanol? Bi-lingual poll workers provide a much needed and vital service to voters in every Township.
