POLL WORKER TRAINING SESSIONS ANNOUNCED

            The Doña Ana County Bureau of Elections is hosting two information sessions to answer questions for anyone interested in working as an election official at the polls.
            The next session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19 from 5:30 to 6 p.m. in Room 113 at the Doña Ana County Government Center, 845 N. Motel Boulevard. Another session will be held Tuesday, May 21, also from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
“Election officials serve on the frontlines of the democratic process in our county,” said Doña Ana County Clerk Amanda López Askin. “They have a big job; they take on the responsibility of ensuring that the proper procedures are followed throughout our electoral process, and their service is critical to ensuring elections run with integrity and transparency.”
            To serve as an election official, you must be registered to vote in Doña Ana County, attend a two-hour training session, take an oath of office, and have basic computer experience, a mobile phone and an email address. You must also be able to read and write, and bilingual residents are strongly encouraged to apply.
            Anyone 16 years of age or older may apply; those under 18 must obtain their parents’ permission and do not need to be registered to vote. The pay for early voting ranges from $10 to $12 per hour for approximately one month, and workers are paid a flat rate of $175 to $250 on Election Day.
            For more information, call (575) 647-7428 or to complete an application, visit www.donaanacounty.org/elections/election-worker-application.
