NorCo Seeks Elections Workers

From Northampton County's Elections Office: Northampton County Elections Office is seeking registered voters who live in Northampton County to serve in poll worker positions for the upcoming Primary Election on Tuesday, April 23rd, and General Election on Tuesday, November 5th.

Every year, elections in Northampton County are made possible by citizens who serve as poll workers. These people do the important work of checking in voters at polling places and setting them up with a ballot. At the end of the night, poll workers deliver the returns to county election officials. We depend on these workers to ensure fair, accurate, and legal elections.

Poll workers must attend mandatory training prior to the Primary Election and are also paid for their training time and work on Election Day. Northampton County poll workers may earn between $175 and $200 for serving all of Election Day, depending on the poll worker’s assignments and training. Typical Election Day hours are from 6:30 a.m. until after the polls close at 8 p.m. Individuals who bring supplies back to the Government Center receive additional compensation and mileage.

The PA Election Code also permits high school students 17 years of age to serve at the polls in specific capacities.

Registered voters interested in becoming poll workers in your community, email the Northampton County Elections Office at election@norcopa.gov or call 610-829-6260. Any 17-year-old high school student who is interested should complete this form and return it to the Elections Office.

Our democracy increases in strength the more we all participate.

Forget this poll crap and inept voting machines. Everyone votes by mail and we then do not need any poll workers and human error eliminated at that level..it's a start!
