Election Day Employees
The Jefferson County Board of Elections is currently looking for persons to work at the polls on Election Day. Beginning pay is $100 per day, with an opportunity for advancement. You may know people who are poll workers, and if you do, they will tell you that it can be a very rewarding day.
Be advised, however, as a poll worker, you will be required to attend a training session. You also must report to your assigned polling location at 6 a.m. on the day of the election and work until the polls close and all paper work and machine close out is completed. Typically, you will complete your assignment by 8 p.m., but there are times when your day could be longer.

In order to be a poll worker, you must meet the following criteria:
Be a citizen of the United States and a resident of Jefferson County.
Be at least 16 years of age.

Georgia Election Code Section 21-2-8 states that no person convicted of a felony shall serve as a Poll Officer unless his civil rights have been restored.
