BATAVIA, Ohio (Feb. 1, 2018) — The Clermont County Board of Elections is recruiting precinct election officials (PEOs) โ€“ 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.

โ€œBeing a poll worker is an enjoyable and rewarding way to be part of the election process,โ€ said Julia Carney, Director of the Board of Elections. โ€œPoll 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.โ€
