Election jobs are open;
here's how to apply

Where do I apply for work to set up things for the election or help during the election?

Call 453-8683, the Office of Elections. Between 2,000 and 3,000 people are needed on Oahu alone to help with precinct operations each election day, said Raymond Santana, precinct operations specialist in the elections office.

Other workers are needed as "early birds" to deliver ballot transport containers to the precincts. The containers must reach the precincts by 5:30 or 6 a.m., so you must be willing to get up much earlier.

Some workers are needed at the elections control center at the state House of Representatives' chamber at the state Capitol. They will help the assistant chairperson in solving problems that may occur in the precincts, or serve as telephone or computer operators.

Helpers also are needed for work with supplies and collection of supplies at the end of the day. They will take inventory and collect leftover containers at the precincts at the end of the day.

After you've telephoned to say you want to work on the elections, you will be called or sent a letter saying when and where to report for training.

Elections workers must be 16 years of age or older. Those ages 16 and 17 need a parent's approval signature to work. If you're 18 or older, your own signature is all that is needed. The pay averages $75 per election.
