'Desperate need' for poll workers


Hamilton County Republican Party leaders say they "are in desperate need" for Republican poll workers for the March primary.

With the election less than a month away, there is currently a need for over 250 Republican workers in almost every neighborhood.

High school seniors who are 17-years-old can apply, said Sherry Poland, Hamilton County Board of Elections, in an appearance Thursday on FOX19 NOW Morning News.

She also will displayed an e-poll book, or tablet, and information about two new poll worker recruitment programs the elections board is promoting: Partners in Democracy and Youth at the Booth.

There is a four-hour training class, and you also must work the Monday night prior to Election Day and Election Day.

The position pays $181.50 to $218.00.

For more information or to sign up, call Christa Criddle at the Hamilton County Board of Elections: 513-632-7042.

Information and applications also can be found at the BOE website www.votehamiltoncounty.org.
