Help your community: Be a poll worker
Friday, June 12, 2020 by Tai Moses
Travis County needs poll workers – more than 700 poll workers, to be exact – to staff election day voting sites. The Travis County Elections Coordinator has partnered with the League of Women Voters Austin Area and OpenAustin to beat the bushes and sign up election day poll workers for the upcoming primary runoff and special elections on July 14. If you’re a registered voter, you may sign up to be an election day poll worker. The gig pays $10-12 per hour and comes with the warm feeling of participating in the democratic process. Sign up here. The Travis County Clerk will contact you about scheduling an hourlong online training session. Find more information about other temporary election positions here.
