Maricopa County hiring poll workers for elections, offering bonuses

The Maricopa County Elections Department is looking for poll workers, warehouse workers, ballot processors and other related positions for the upcoming general election. 

Department spokesperson Megan Gilbertson says these paid positions vary in length, and some workers who stay on longer may see a more than $1,700 bonus.

“It takes an entire community to run an election in Maricopa County. We're going to need to hire over 3,000 temporary employees to support us in the November general election," Gilbertson said

Many of the jobs require the worker to be a registered voter. There are details at the Maricopa elections  office website.
