The Cook County Clerk’s office is in need of poll workers to serve voters in the community for the March 15th Presidential Primary! Having a broad spectrum of community members working together to serve voters in local polling places is a critical part of the democratic process.
There are two positions available: Election Judge or Equipment Manager. Both assist voters and ensure the polling place is running smoothly. Equipment Managers have greater responsibility for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment. Due to the additional responsibility, Equipment Managers receive more training and higher pay. Election Judges earn $175. Equipment Managers earn $325.
