ELECTION DAY OFFICERS NEEDED IN EAST BOSTON FOR THE SEPTEMBER 16TH STATE PRIMARY AND THE NOVEMBER 4TH STATE ELECTION!

Have you ever gone to vote and thought that you might enjoy being an Election Officer “someday,” or have you thought that the poll workers at your precinct are a great group, and you would love to have the opportunity to work with them? Well, “someday” is here! The State Primary on Tuesday, September 16th and the State Election on Tuesday, November 4th are your chances to serve your community and earn some money at the same time!

There are a number of openings for Election Day Officers throughout East Boston. While there is a particular need for bilingual Spanish and Vietnamese speakers,  there are opportunities for everyone. From Wardens, who are responsible for the smooth operation of their polling locations, to Clerks, who oversee the checking in of voters and keep the records of the day, to Inspectors who direct and assist voters, there is a need at all levels across the community.

All that is needed are an ability to follow directions precisely, attentiveness to detail, a strong commitment to fairness and impartiality, and a desire to serve. Election Officers must be registered voters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and can come from any city or town. Election Officers work from 6AM-9PM,  which is an hour before and an hour after the polls are open for voters. There is some allowance for part-time shifts, although a shift must be at least six (6) hours.

For more information, or to download a poll worker application, please visit the Boston Election Department’s website at
www.cityofboston.gov/elections or call
617-635-4491.
