Poll-Worker Initiative

The Poll-Worker Initiative recruits and trains hundreds of students to serve as poll-workers with the Board of Elections to help address shortages for the city-wide primary and general elections. 

The Initiative also provides for on-campus poll worker trainings at select CUNY campuses across the five boroughs.

The Board of Elections is looking for students who can work as Inspectors or Interpreters on Election Day.

FOR INSPECTORS, ONCE SCREENED, THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS WILL PROVIDE:

  • A four-hour training session for potential workers
  • Compensation of $200.00 per day for working in the primary election and the general election
  • Compensation of $100 for attending training and passing the exam

FOR INTERPRETERS, ONCE SCREENED, THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS WILL PROVIDE:

  • A two-hour training session for potential workers
  • Compensation of $200.00 per day for working in the primary election and the general election
  • Compensation of $25 for attending training and passing the exam
