Precinct Official Recruitment

The League has been invited by the Lieutenant Governor to take part in the 1994 Precinct Official Recruitment Program. The elections of years past saw numerous organizations take part in this program which involved the recruitment of more than 4,000 employees, associates, friends, and family members. As precinct officials, their efforts became an essential part of ensuring an honest and secure election.

This year, approximately 5,000 individuals will operate 325 polling places statewide. Our support of this program will help enroll a portion of these individuals for election day service. An active participation in this program also provides us with an excellent opportunity to serve our community in a highly visible way.

To become a precinct official and work in the Primary Election, on Saturday, September 17 and the General Election on Tuesday, November 8, you must be:

  • A registered voter or eligible to register

  • Able to read and write English

  • Attend a brief training session between June and September

  • Not be a candidate, parent, spouse, sibling or child of a candidate

and you can work as a precinct official and earn $75 to $145 for each election in which you work.

State Law requires precinct officials to work in the precinct in which they vote. If no vacancy exists within that district, placement will be in a neighboring district.

The hours are long and the pay is small, but assisting your fellow neighbors to vote can be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience. This is your opportunity to volunteer your services to the community and at the same time, gain first-hand knowledge and experience in the electoral process. If interested, call Samuel N. Cruz, Precinct Operations Assistant at 453-8683.
