Poll workers needed

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Positions are still available to be a poll worker for the Primary Election.

Clay County Deputy Clerk Beth Mallinak said there are requirements that must be met in order to be one of the county's 161 poll workers.

"They must be a registered voter, and also be able to be at the polls at 5 a.m., until 7 or 7:30 p.m., the night of the election, which is Tuesday, May 4," Mallinak said. "The other requirement is that potential poll workers must attend Election School."

Two opportunities are available to attend Election School. The first will take place Thursday, April 22, at the Orange Building in Goshorn Park, Clay City, and the other will be Tuesday, April 27, in the Superior Courtroom at the Clay County Courthouse.

"Both classes begin at 7 p.m., and should last about an hour-and-a-half," Mallinak said.

At each of the county's 23 polling locations, there will be seven poll workers including an inspector, two election sheriffs, two clerks and two judges."

"For the sheriffs, clerk and judges, there must be one Republican and one Democrat," Mallinak said. "Those interested in being a poll worker needs to contact us as soon as possible."

For more information or to sign up as a poll worker, contact the Clay County Election Office at 448-9023.
