Hamilton County Needs Poll Workers for Primary Election

Hamilton County Election Office is in need of poll workers for the Primary Election on May 3rd – namely, inspectors, clerks, and judges. 

County Clerk Kathy Williams

“You must be a registered voter in Hamilton County,” says County Clerk Kathy Williams. “The jobs do require some training, but they are paid. As are meals. Plus, it’s a great way to learn more about our democratic system and give something back to your community.”

Hamilton County is still looking for Republican Inspectors. These people are in charge of the precinct and must attend a training session on one of the following days: April 26 at 6:30 p.m., April 28 at 6:30 p.m., or April 30th at 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. Other obligations include picking up supplies on April 30th, setting up the polling place on May 2nd, and working on Election Day. The job pays $200, plus $25 for training and $20 for meals.

The county is also in need of Republican and Democrat judges. This position requires no training. These individuals will help set up the polling place on May 2nd and run the polling place on May 3rd. These jobs pay $105, plus $20 for meals. The Democratic judge will be paid an extra $15 to return election results to the Judicial Center in Noblesville with the Republican Inspector after the polls close. 

And finally, the county is in need of Republican and Democratic Clerks to run the electronic polling pads. These people must attend a training on April 23rd at either 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. The job pays $105, plus $15 for training and $20 for meals.
