The Butler County Board of Elections has launched a local campaign, aimed to donate money to charities, churches and other organizations, in hope to recruit poll workers for the upcoming election Nov. 6.
The “Share Your Day … and Your Pay” program allows poll workers to combine their efforts and earn up to $1,000 to donate, as well as receive a tax deduction.
Poll workers can still keep their money earned. According to the Butler County Board of Elections, poll workers can individually earn between $125 and $180 depending on their roles.
In order to become a poll worker, you must be at least 17 years old, be a registered voter in the county which you plan to be a poll worker in, not been convicted of a felony and not be a candidate for the election in which you are working.
There will be a set-up meeting for poll workers at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 5. On Election Day, Nov. 6, poll workers will need to be on hand from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. or until all duties are completed. The polls will be open for voters from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
