Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner is asking citizens to become poll workers for the upcoming election season, which includes primary elections on Aug. 23 and a Nov. 8 general election.
Poll workers ensure polling places are run efficiently, accurately and fairly. They will be trained to be inspectors and deputies and will be paid from $175 to $300 per election. If interested in applying, you must be a registered (or pre-registered) voter in Sarasota County and able to attend the necessary training.
Turner is also urging high school and college students to apply. In addition to being paid, students can receive community service hours.
