The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is seeking reliable and civic-minded people to serve as poll workers during the Nov. 6 general election.
Applications will be available at more than 100 locations throughout the county.
"We rely on 6,000 poll workers to help us conduct our elections so we need to hire the best, most hardworking team in the field," said Jane Platten, Board of Elections director.
Poll workers earn $172.10 for their service, which includes successfully completing a poll worker training class, attending a meeting the night before the election, and working Election Day from 5:30 a.m. until about 8 p.m.
Poll workers must be at least 17 years of age and registered to vote in Cuyahoga County. State law does not allow convicted felons to serve as poll workers.
Bilingual and Republican poll workers are always in demand. Each of the county’s 1,063 precincts requires two Democrat and two Republican poll workers to ensure political balance during the voting process.
