Pinellas County Seeks Poll Workers for Presidential Preference Primary
Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark is looking for more poll workers for the January 29 Presidential Preference Primary. A countywide election requires more than 3,000 poll workers, and openings are still available.
Poll worker training started earlier this month. Class schedules vary, depending on the duty assigned. For instance, a clerk or machine manager is required to take one general class, plus an 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 and deputies are required to take one 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.
