Austin: Urgent need for poll workers

Filed under: — site admin @ 6:10 pm
Here’s the deal, if we don’t get enough folks to work these precinct polling locations, THEY WILL HAVE TO BE COMBINED!! This will lead to much confusion, turning first-time voters off, and possible voter disenfranchisement for both the primary and caucus!If you are an Election Judge worried about missing your own caucus, you can hand off the post-poll closing paperwork delivery to an alternate judge or clerk.

If you can work basically 7am-7pm on election day, please read more below…


The Travis County Democratic Party contracts with the Travis County Elections Division for the Primary Election and are seeking Democrats to work the polling locations throughout the county for the March 4, 2008 Democratic Primary.Let’s not have this happen, so spread the word and tell all your friends and family who may be able to work the polls to call 854 - 9552 and tell them to say: “I want to work the polls for the Democratic Party on March 4th!!!”

We need presiding judges (aka Election Judges or Poll workers), alternate judges, and clerks. All poll workers are required to attend training which is provided by the Travis County Elections Division before the Primary and will be offered during the day and evening, during the week and on weekends. The pay, which is set by the Texas Secretary of State, is $7.00/hour.

If you are interested in working the polls on March 4, 2008 Election Day please call the TRAVIS COUNTY ELECTIONS DIVISION at 854-9552.
