Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark is looking for more poll workers for the November 7th General Election. A countywide election requires more than 3,000 poll workers, and openings are available throughout the county.
Poll worker training started Monday for the General Election. Class schedules vary, depending on the duty assigned. For instance, a clerk or machine manager is required to take a four-hour general class, plus a 2½ -hour equipment class with more extensive training about the voting machines. Clerks must also attend a one-hour class the day before the election to pick up their materials.
Inspectors, provisional ballot managers and deputies are required to take a three-hour class in order to work on Election Day.
Total pay for election work and classes ranges from $125 to $245, depending on the poll worker position.
