Want to be a poll worker? Here’s how

BATAVIA, Ohio (Feb. 1, 2018) — The Clermont County Board of Elections is recruiting precinct election officials (PEOs) – better known as poll workers — to staff polling locations for both the May 8 primary election and the Nov. 6 general election.

Poll workers are paid a minimum of $155 for attending the 2-3 hour training course held at the Board of Elections, and working Election Day. On Election Day, polls are open 6:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. in Ohio.

“Being a poll worker is an enjoyable and rewarding way to be part of the election process,” said Julia Carney, Director of the Board of Elections. “Poll workers are the backbone of our election system and help ensure all elections are conducted in a fair and accurate manner and serve to help safeguard the integrity of the election process.”

Poll workers are required to be registered voters in Clermont County.
