   Join the team of dependable and proud individuals who help ensure this basic right - to          vote in fair and free elections.

   The San Juan County Bureau of Elections needs over 400 pollworkers to work at the polls      during county-wide elections.


   WHAT DOES A POLLWORKER DO?

  •    Open and close the polls

  •    Set up voting equipment

  •    Register and sign-in voters

  •    Issue ballots

  •    Record and certify vote totals


   TO BE A POLLWORKER YOU MUST:

  •    Be at least 18 years of age

  •    Read, write and speak English

  •    Attend a 2 hour training class prior to the election

  •    Be a registered voter in San Juan County


   On Election Day, poll workers must remain at the polling place the entire day. The hours        are 6:00 AM to approximately 8:00 PM

   Pollworkers are paid $125 for the day and $25 for attending the 2 hour training session.

   Presiding Judges make an additional $25, and are paid $35 if they pick up the supply box      the day before the election.

   We are especially in need of Navajo bilingual persons to serve as interpreters. Interpreters    translate the ballot information into the Navajo language for voters. Interpreters make $100    or election day and $25 for each training session they attend. Interpreters are only                  required to work from 6:30 AM to 7:00, or until the last voter has voted.
