Many Communities, One Democracy

Democracy doesn’t just happen. Every voter who casts a ballot on Election Day depends on the poll workers who are there serving voters and facilitating democracy. The Cook County Clerk's office is hiring community members to serve in suburban polling places and make it possible for their neighbors to cast their ballots and be heard on March 20th.

There are two positions available: Election Judge or Equipment Manager. Both Election Judges and Equipment Managers assist voters and ensure the polling place is running smoothly. Equipment Managers are also responsible for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment. Due to the additional responsibility, Equipment Managers receive more training and get higher pay. Election Judges earn $190, Equipment Managers earn $340.
