City offers election job opportunities

The city is holding recruitment open houses twice this week for residents interested in being hired as election workers for the civic elections in October.
The first of the recruitment open houses is being held in a meeting room at city hall today (Aug. 5), with three times slots – 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., 12 to 2 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. The other is on Thursday Aug. 7 with two time slots – 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 2-4 p.m.
Interested residents are being asked to fill out an application – available on – and attend one of the open house sessions, where short interviews will be conducted. Applications can also be picked up at the open house, but they will not be accepted by email, fax or mail, a news release said.
The city is looking to hire people to work at voting locations during the advance-voting period of Oct. 15-19 or on election day, Oct. 27, or both.
These are the required positions:
• Ballot officer (paid $220 a day) – they check voters’ identification, issue written oaths and ballots, brief voters on procedures and electronically strike voters off the list as they vote
• Revision officer (also paid $220 a day) – they assist voters to get on the voter list, enforce revision requirements and add voters to the list
• Tabulator officer (paid $180 a day) – they receive completed ballots in secrecy folders from voters, process ballots through the vote tabulator and transfer used ballots from a ballot box into a ballot transfer box.
All of these election workers will report to a managing officer, helping with set-up and take-down as directed. No experience is necessary, but past election experience is an asset, the city says.
Computer experience is required for the ballot officer and revision officer positions, and tabulator officers should be comfortable using electronic equipment. Training is provided for all posts.
