If you are interested in serving your community and earning a little extra cash, the Cobb County Board of Elections is looking for people to work at voting precincts for the upcoming November 3 General Election. They are looking for applicants who take pride in their work, are patient, take direction well, and who pay attention to detail. A poll worker must be a U.S. citizen, Cobb County resident, at least 16 years old, be able to read, write and speak English and not have any felony conviction in the past 10 years.
Poll workers must attend at least one mandatory training class before working at the poll. New workers are paid $150 for Election Day, $30-40 for the training class and $25 for helping to set up the poll. Workers must arrive at 6 a.m. on Election Day and stay until all voters leave and closing procedures are completed. You must provide your own transportation to your scheduled training class and to the poll on Election Day.
