UNION COUNTY, NJ -- The Union County Board of Elections is seeking poll workers for the2020 Presidential Elections.
“Serving as a Union County Poll Worker is a great way to get involved in this exciting Presidential year while exercising your civic responsibility by serving your community on Election Day,” said Nicole DiRado, Administrator of the Union County Board of Elections.
The Primary Election is June 2, 2020 and the General Election is November 3, 2020.
Poll workers receive a stipend of $200.00 for the day.
Poll workers are stationed at each polling place in Union County on Election Day. They are trained to answer questions that voters may have about the voting process, and to ensure everyone who is eligible to vote is afforded the opportunity to do so.
Any Union County resident who is 18 years or older, and registered to vote in Union County, can qualify to become a poll worker.
No experience is needed. New poll workers are required to attend a single-session training course. Returning poll workers take a refresher course every two years.
