Montgomery County pays $150.00 for Election Day plus $25.00 to attend
training. We do not utilize split shifts, so your assignment would last
the full day (with breaks). Officers of Election must arrive at the
polling place by 5:00 a.m. and must stay until all closing tasks have been
completed. The polls close at 7:00 p.m., and closing tasks usually take
about 1 to 1½ hours.
Because Officers are not allowed to leave the polling place during
work hours, you must either pack meals or have someone drop off food.
Most polling places have access to a refrigerator and microwave. At some
locations, the Officers have a pot luck meal which you may participate
in if you wish. Once assigned a precinct for work, you’ll be able to
contact your Chief Officer for details.
