Adair County Seeks Student Poll Workers for Nov. 7 Elections

Students interested in gaining experience in the electoral process of the United States and Missouri government system have an exciting opportunity for first-hand experience. Missouri Secretary of State Robin Clanahan and Adair County Clerk Jim Lymer are currently recruiting students to serve as Adair County poll workers during the Nov. 7 mid-term United States Congress and State of Missouri government elections.

In order to be eligible to be an Adair County poll worker, students must be registered to vote in Adair County, and must declare their political party affiliation. Workers will be paid a honorarium for their service on Election Day, Nov. 7, and will be paid minimum wage for their time at a training session that will be scheduled shortly before the election.

Interested students should submit their name, local mailing address, e-mail and telephone number by noon Oct. 12 to the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) located in the lower level of the Student Union Building. Students may also submit information over the phone by calling the CSI at 785.4222.

Students’ names and information will be forwarded to Adair County Clerk Jim Lymer, who will contact prospective students with more information and specifics about training and Election Day obligations.
