Need some easy cash and want to serve your community??? Work the elections this year. Suburban Cook County is gearing up for its Gubernatorial Primary Elections this March, 20, 2018, and they are now taking applications for Election Judges and Equipment Managers. Hands-on classes are now filling for this position. Election Judges will make $190 for a day of service, and Equipment Managers will make $340. Easy money and you are actually up doing something versus always talking about it on Facebook. Do your part. This will be the 3rd election cycle that I have had the opportunity to become available for. You will work a full day registering and signing in voters allowing them to cast their votes and you will receive a check in the mail about a week or so later, after successfully completing your responsibility. Easy as that. Don’t say I didn’t tell you guys about it. Sign up for this election and please feel free to share this blog post for all of your friends to see. There are many needed to work all areas in Suburban Cook County. My first time applying, I was immediately called back to be a fill-in, and then I was selected to work within my precinct at the following elections that I signed up for. From talking with other election judges and equipment manageres on the job, I have found out that the sooner you make yourself available on the site and finish your completely free training, the better the chances of you working the location you would like to work. So do not get discouraged if you are not selected the first time around or are placed as a fill-in. It is first come first serve so you may have just been too late. This notice was sent to me yesterday, but with my busy schedule, I was not able to share it as soon as I would have liked to. I did just check, prior to posting this blog, and there are still many classes available all over. The seats are limited and you cannot work the elections without completing your training. If training is only available at distant locations, still sign up and travel to take the course. It only takes a few hours and you are not required to work the area where you have trained. You may still have the opportunity to work closer to your home on election day if space is available. If you don’t get in this time, your information will still be in the system and they will inform you of the next opportunity to work future elections as soon as the pool reopens; even if you did not work the last cycle. You just have to be registered and that is it. If you have already taken the class, you may not even have to take the class again. I did not have to retake the class on my last run, because the class I took prior to was still up to date for the next election. I am going to assume that persons already registered receive notification first of the job availability, since I received my notice email to mark myself as available if interested weeks before I received this notice to tell a friend that they are still hiring. I am sure these seats will fill up fast, so please do not hesitate to apply if interested. The application is not one of those 50 page, grueling applications, so get up and do it. There is no excuse. I must warn you though, that this job requires you to clear a few hours for training, and an entire day on election day. There are no shifts for this job. You will work the polls from poll open to poll close. 7am-7pm and you may have to set up the night before or early that morning and help take down at the end of your shift. It all depends on the setup and take down technique of your Equipment Manager and the rest of your team. So if you work a regular 9 to 5, this may not work for you, but for the stay-at-home-moms and dads like myself, or people with flexible schedules, this is an easy way for you to make a little extra cash and serve your community at the same time.
