Morris County Poll Workers Needed


voteMorris County election officials are looking for people to work at the polls during the Tuesday, August 13 special primary election. Any Morris County resident who is a registered voter and who is able to read and write English may apply to become a poll worker, said George Hanley, chairman of the Morris County Board of Elections.

An individual must complete a two-hour training class before he or she can work the polls. Once an individual has been assigned to work the polls, they will be notified of the training classes.

An election worker must report to his or her assigned polling place at 5:15 a.m. on Tuesday, August 13 and prepare the polling place for voting, which begins at 6:00 a.m.

While the polling place is open, an election worker must verify that voters are registered in the district, maintain order at the polls and demonstrate the voting process to voters upon request.

The worker must also close the polling location at 8:00 p.m. or when all voters in line have voted. Poll workers will earn $200 for the day.
