If you want to make some extra money, then the Department of Elections wants you.
That is the word today from Sharon L. Harrington, supervisor of Elections for Lee County. Joni Schopke, a poll worker and recruitment coordinator with board of elections said they are hiring poll workers to work the 2014 elections.
There are currently more than 150 poll workers positions available and they are paid to work.
"This is not volunteer work," Schopke said.
The money is not bad either.
Positions are available for precinct deputies for $150 a day and for inspectors at $165 a day. Voter assistance inspectors get $225 a day and must be bilingual and be able to speak Spanish.
The 2014 election dates are April 22, a special primary and June 24, a special election. Then again, spots are available on elections on August 26 at the primary and again on Nov. 4 at the general election.
