Earn extra cash as an election worker

Jobs pay between $10-12 per hour for part-time work.

TEXAS, USA — Elections are one of the most important moments in America, and if you're interested in helping making a difference, you may want to check-in at your local election office and see if part-time work is available.

They say it's tough work, but you can earn yourself a chunk of change at $10- $12 per hour.

For every election, the county has to hire dozens of people for both election and early voting days to make sure each polling location runs smoothly.

"The main job is to help the voter get to the screen, tell them what to do, and that's really about it," said Carolyn Graves, the Elections Administrator of Midland County.

Graves said the part-time shifts are from start to finish of the election days, and by law, you can't leave.

When all is said and done, you might earn a couple hundred bucks, or you could even make more than a thousand depending on how many days you work.

For those interested, officials say signing up is easy.

"It's easy, you come in, put your name on a paper and tell us when you want to work," explains Graves.

Paid training is required for most positions.

Ector County says positions are open as of September 28.

Midland County is currently taking information from those who are interested.

Early voting starts Oct. 13 and runs through Oct. 30. Election Day is Nov. 3.

For more information, you can contact your local elections office and find out what options are available.
