Jefferson County Clerk's Office - Election Center
 

   Precinct Election Officer
     We are always in need of responsible, registered voters to serve as precinct Election Officers.

An Election Officer is a very important person who works the polls all day on Election Day to ensure that voting is conducted in a fair and orderly manner.

Each precinct is required to have four precinct Election Officers on the day of the election. We recruit registered Democrats and Republicans to fill Election Officer positions per KRS 117.045.

We also accept applications from voters who are registered as non-partisan, (Other, Independent, etc.). These applicants are alternates/back-ups, and may fill vacancies in precincts where we do not have enough Republican or Democratic Election Officers. Our non-partisan Election Officers who serve on election day are placed back on alternate status after the election.

We do not guarantee any polling location, precinct, or area. Once you have taken the Oath of Office, you must be willing to serve where you are needed. We make every effort to place you in the vacancy closest to your home.

Each Election Officer is paid $40 for attending a mandatory training session and $160 per Election Day. You may receive an additional $10 payment for picking up or returning equipment.

Checks are mailed out no later than three weeks after the election. We do not provide W-2s or 1099 tax forms for serving as an Election Officer.

If you are interested in becoming a precinct Election Officer, please review the or contact the Election Center for more detailed information.
