Pinellas County Seeks Poll Workers for Primary and General Elections
Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark is looking for more poll workers for the August 26 Primary Election and the November 4 General Election. A countywide election requires more than 3,000 poll workers, and openings are still available. And, poll workers are paid!
If interested in becoming part of the election process, consider the positions available—clerk, assistant clerk, machine manager, ballot distribution manager, inspector, or precinct deputy. Applicants must be registered or pre-registered voters in Pinellas County, able to read and write English. Poll worker duties and responsibilities vary on the assigned position and are fully explained during training classes.
Poll workers must attend the required training class or classes (based on poll worker position). Class schedules vary, depending on the duty assigned. Poll workers are compensated $25 per training class and $100 to $130 on Election Day (varies according to the position assigned).
Organizations interested in raising money as poll workers can learn more about Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections’ Partners at the Polls program by calling (727) 464-6110. This program can help fund your community project when your group enrolls as poll workers for Election Day and receives one check payable to your organization or the charity of your choice.
