Interested in helping out on Election Day?

 

 

 

 To the voter, Election Day is easy - you show up, you vote, and you go about your day.  And that is the way it should be - easy!  But, what voters may not realize, is that it has taken months and months of careful preparation, hundreds of hours of planning, and LOTS of extra help to make Election Day run smoothly.      

Each election, the County Clerk's office must hire between 50-65 Election Judges to assist voters on Election Day.  Judge duties include polling site set up and take down, greeting voters, checking in voters, handing out ballots, registering new voters, and making changes to existing voter records. 

Per Wyoming State Statute 22-8-102, "Judges of election shall be registered electors and shall be physically, morally and mentally competent to perform their duties".  Additionally, all judges are obligated to attend at least one training session, and, you must be able to commit to working all elections during a cycle.    

On Election Day, all judges are required to work from 6:00 a.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m. (Yes, you read that right!) at a specific polling site.  From 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., all judges help set up the polling site by starting machines, and setting up tables, chairs, and voting booths.  At 7:00 a.m., the polls open to the public, and do not close until 7:00 p.m. Once the polls are closed, it's time to pack up everything and get the results to the Clerk's Office.  We aren't going to lie, it's a long day! But, we are happy to report that most of our judges have returned year after year because "it's kinda fun!". 

So, in addition to serving your community and maybe having a little fun, you will also make some extra money!  Judges are paid $12.00 per hour on Election Day, receive a $10.00 lunch stipend, and are paid $20.00 for attending the training session. 

Across the nation, there is a critical shortage of poll workers, and Teton County is no different.  To provide well staffed and smooth running polling sites, we need your help!  Please contact us at 307.733.4430, or at elections@tetonwyo.org for more details.  Thank you!
