Election Workers

 

 

Responsibilities

Election workers are responsible for all aspects of the administration of an election.  They process same-day voter registrations, verify voter documents, assist voters as needed, process all absentee ballots, and complete all paperwork necessary following the close of the polls.  They ensure the integrity of elections, and must have on-going training to keep up on all of the changes to election law.  The City of Markesan uses split shifts, so that in most cases an election worker will not work more than 7-8 hours per election.  The position is paid $7.50 per hour.  If you are interested in serving as an election worker, please complete the Application for Poll Worker (see the link below) and return the form to the Clerk-Treasurer's office.

 

Election workers are appointed by the Mayor for two-year terms in odd-numbered years.  The City Clerk-Treasurer may appoint additional election workers, if needed, during a term.

High School Opportunities

 

High school students who are 16-17 years old may also serve as election workers, if they meet certain qualifications.  Students who are interested in learning more about the election process, or about political science in general, are encouraged to speak with the Markesan Schools guidance counselor.  Especially for larger elections (presidential, governor's, etc.), the City occasionally does utilitze interested high school students.
