If you have some spare time and would like to earn some money, why not help out the Palm Beach County Elections Office.
Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory Link told Jen and Bill Monday morning that her office is looking for more election workers to help Palm Beach County vote in the 2022 Primary and General Elections.
“You can make a difference in our community by joining our team of nonpartisan Election Workers. It takes 5,000 Election Workers to staff our polling places on Election Day. Our Election Workers are engaged citizens from all walks of life who are committed to serving the voters of Palm Beach County and ensuring fair and accurate elections are conducted. On Election Day, we count on these civic-minded individuals to efficiently assist voters through the entire voting experience pleasantly and professionally.”
Florida teenagers, ages 16-17, even though they cannot vote can work the polls and get paid along with community service hours.
All Palm Beach County election worker positions are paid, according to Sartory Link.
Election Workers can earn between $190 – $320 per Election Day worked which includes Election Day, Orientation, and Training.
Election Workers are required to attend training before each election.
Before becoming an Election Worker in Palm Beach County, you must attend a virtual one-hour orientation session that provides an overview of the process.
