Morris Looking for Poll Workers for Special Primary Election
Friday, June 7, 2013
Morris County election officials are looking for individuals to work at the polls during the August 13 special primary election for the office of U.S. Senate.
The Senate seat opened up this week with the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg.
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, Hanley said.
An election worker must report to his or her assigned polling place at 5:15 a.m. on Aug. 13 and prepare the polling place for voting, which begins at 6 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 p.m. or when all voters in line have voted.
Poll workers will earn $200 for the day.
Anyone interested in working the polls for the Aug. 13 special primary election may obtain an application online at www.morriselections.org/pollworkers
, or by contacting the Morris County Board of Elections at 973-285-8350.
Once an individual has been assigned to work the polls, he or she will be notified of the training classes, said Hanley.
