Every primary election, the local parties (Democrat and Republican) recruit workers to execute their primary election. The most visible workers are the ones who work election day, processing voters to vote in the election at their respective polling location. There are also behind the scenes workers such as the early voting ballot board and central count station.
The local Democrat Party is currently seeking workers to work at our county polling locations. There is a mandatory 2 hour training session one week before the election to learn about the paper work and equipment.
The parties are required to hire three workers for each polling location. Two of the workers are required to be registered voters in the polling precinct that they will be working in. These positions are titled the Election Judge and Alternate Election Judge. There is also a clerk position. The clerk must be a registered voter of the county they will be working in.
Election worker pay is dictated by the Texas Secretary of State at $8.00 per hour. Election day polling precincts hours are from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Workers are required to be 30 minutes early and will have to stay 30 minutes after the polls close to assort paper work to be turned into the Burleson County Elections office. This is a 13 hour work day. Election workers provide a service for the state. Zero taxes will be taken from workers pay.
If you would like to support your local party by becoming an election worker for the Tuesday, March 6 Democratic Primary Election, please contact Democratic County Chair, Linda Autrey at (979)596-1917.
P.S. Elections are held year round. The best way to get the experience to work other elections in your political subdivision: federal, state, county, city and school, it is best to get experience working a primary election.
