The City posts any open positions on this page. Some positions may also be advertised in other ways, such as newspapers or related websites. All positions posted here are paid positions. For more information on any of these opportunities, click the links below.
The City is always interested in additional election workers (i.e. poll workers). Election workers are needed to efficiently run every election of the City. Paid training is provided. In general, about 10 poll workers are needed for each election, and for certain larger elections up to 14 workers are used. As not every worker is available for every election, we prefer to have more than 14 people on our list.
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.
Election workers are appointed by the Mayor for two-year terms in December of odd-numbered years. The City Clerk-Treasurer may appoint additional election workers, if needed, during a term. The City of Markesan uses split shifts, so that in most cases, an election worker will not work more than 7-8 hours for an election. Pay is $9.50 per hour. If you are interested in serving as an election worker, please complete the application below, and return it to the City of Markesan Clerk-Treasurer, PO Box 352, Markesan, WI 53946. If you have questions about the position, please contact the Clerk-Treasurer at 920-398-3031.
