The Boston Election Department is recruiting poll workers to assist in the upcoming elections for the City’s 254 precincts. Jobs include, but are not limited to: assist with preparing the voting location for opening; hang signs in accordance with legal requirements; count ballots; check in voters; maintain a record of the Election Day activities; check handicap access; assist in removing signage; pack up election materials; and help check counts at the end of the day. Stipends for poll workers range from $135-$175. While it is encouraged that all Poll Workers be available from 6AM to the closing of the polls (9PM), those workers serving as Inspectors or Interpreters may opt for a half-day shift: 6AM to 2PM or 1PM to 9PM (prorated pay rate of $9/hour). All prospective Poll Workers will be required to attend a mandatory 2-hour training session prior to the Elections. It should be noted that all poll workers must be registered voters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For more information on becoming a Poll Worker , please contact the Boston Election Department at (617)635-3767 or by email at Election@cityofboston.gov. Applications can be downloaded directly from their website and can be mailed, faxed or returned as an email attachment. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to us!
