TRENTON — New Jersey counties are seeking residents to serve as poll workers for the upcoming June 6 primary election.
Those who staff a polling location will earn $21.43 per hour on in-person early voting days and $300 for a full shift on primary day, according to a news release from the New Jersey Division of Elections.
The division is partnering with counties to recruit election workers.
“Poll workers are essential to our election process,” said Assistant Secretary of State Lauren Zyriek Enriquez, who serves as acting director of the New Jersey Division of Elections. “For the upcoming June primary, we will need thousands of New Jersey citizens to step up and serve their communities during the early voting period and on June 6th for Primary Day.”
