Adair County Clerk's Office Seeking Volunteer Poll Workers and Assistants for Nov. 4 Election

The Adair County Clerk’s Office is seeking volunteers to assist at the polls for the 2008 presidential election on Nov. 4. Students who are registered voters in Adair County may volunteer to be a poll worker on election day.

Poll workers will check in registered voters, answer questions and make sure everyone who is eligible is given the opportunity to vote. The time commitment will be 5:30 a.m.-8 p.m. and a three-hour training session prior to the election. Poll workers will be paid $100 for election day and $9.75 per hour of training completed. Poll workers must declare a political affiliation.

Students who cannot work the entire day can still volunteer to be an election day assistant. Election day assistants do not have to be registered to vote in Adair County or declare a political affiliation.

Assistants will show first time voters or voters who have not used electronic voting machines how to complete their ballots properly and assist any voter unsure of their voting location to locate the correct polling place.

The time commitment will be two to three hours on election day and a training session prior to the election. A small stipend will be available for election day assistants.
