Butler County in need of 500 more poll workers for Election Day

At least 500 additional poll workers are needed for the Nov. 7 General Election, according to the Butler County Board of Elections.

Workers are needed throughout the county, with particular need in the Middletown and Oxford areas, officials said.

“Our poll workers serve on a team on Election Day to check in voters and make sure every eligible voter’s vote counts,” said Diane Noonan, Director of the Butler County Board of Elections. “By serving as a poll worker, you can not only earn some extra money, but you also can take pride in knowing you are serving your community and democracy.”

Responsibilities include helping check-in voters as well as setting up and closing polling places.

Poll workers are paid $165 and must attend a three-hour training class, a one-hour meeting on the eve of the election, and work all day Election Day.

To serve as a poll worker, you must be a citizen of the United States, fluent in English and have no felony convictions.
