Marion County will need more than 700 citizens to serve as paid election workers for the general election on Tuesday, November 3rd. A few civic-minded volunteers are still needed to provide customer service to local voters at the polls.

Trained workers support the election by processing voters and issuing ballots; monitoring voting machines; and setting up and closing down the polls. Election workers must be U.S. citizens registered to vote in Marion County able to speak, read and write the English language who complete training and pass required exams, and they must be available to work a 14-hour day beginning at 6am.

If you want to serve on the front lines of democracy and help the Supervisor of Elections ensure a secure, accurate and transparent election, please apply today at www.votemarion.gov/electionworkers.
