Did you know that we hire about 6,000 people to help us conduct general elections? Six thousand! That’s what it takes to ensure our polls are fully staffed, equipment can be transported from location to location, and all behind-the-scenes logistics are under control.
Recruiting 6,000 people to work one to two days is no walk in the park. While we do have a solid base of returning workers each year, we still face challenges when it comes to recruiting a few special types of workers. Please consider serving your community if you can help with the following positions!
Republican Election Officials Needed
It’s no secret that there are far more registered Democrats than Republicans in Cuyahoga County. This simply makes it a bit more challenging to recruit equal numbers of both Democrat and Republican workers. All polling locations must be staffed with representation from both parties to ensure political balance and maintain security.
Bilingual Election Officials Needed
Many communities throughout Cuyahoga County have a large population of Spanish-speaking citizens. Our bilingual election officials ensure all voters have a seamless voting experience.
Special Election Officials Needed
While we always need people to staff the polls on Election Day, we also have an entire fleet of workers responsible for behind-the-scenes logistics. This includes our rovers and ride alongs who travel from various polling locations troubleshooting any issues that may arise throughout the day. They also safeguard sensitive documents and supplies, including ballots.
How to Apply
We are now hiring for the September 12 and November 7 elections. All positions are paid. To apply, please submit your application online. For questions or to learn more, please contact email@example.com, call 216-443-3277 or visit www.443vote.com.
Note: You have a much greater chance of working in one or both elections if you are willing to work in the City of Cleveland. Whether you live in the city or not – we need your help to make this election a success!
Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted, said it himself – we all need to declare a day for democracy and do our part to help with Ohio elections. What better way to do your part while earning some extra spending money in the process? We hope to see you on Election Day!
