Are you interested in the voting process? Have you ever wondered what a poll worker does when you go to vote? This is your opportunity to be a part of the process. The City of Boston is currently seeking to expand its pool of available people to work at local polling places throughout the City of Boston. Training is provided. There is a small stipend paid ranging from about $135 to $175 for the full day voting place appointment depending on your job title and assignment.
There is a specific need in the Roslindale / West Roxbury area but staff is needed citywide. This is a one-day assignment only. You must be a registered voter in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to serve in this capacity.
On voting day you will be responsible to check-in and check-out voters as well as assure accuracy of voter counts and other tasks. The day starts at 6 AM with you assisting in setting up the polling place. The day ends about 9 PM after the votes are counted. Full-day commitments are preferred but a half-day commitment is also possible depending on your schedule. Lunch and dinner breaks are scheduled. This is an ideal position for those out of work, seniors seeking to be involved, part-time workers, single parents, etc. Other positions such as language interpreter are also available.

The next election coming up will be the Presidential Primary on March 1, 2016 in just 1 month. Now is the time to sign up and arrange for one of the training sessions held all over the city. Training sessions are available throughout the month of February.
