Johnson County Election Office needs election workers for upcoming Primary and General elections

JOHNSON COUNTY, KAN. – (June 29, 2015) The Johnson County Election Office is in urgent need of more than 2,000 election workers to serve voters at Johnson County polls during both the Aug. 2 primary and Nov. 8 general elections.

Election workers who work at a polling place are provided a stipend of at least $135 for their public service on each Election Day. 

“Being an election worker is a great way to serve your community, take an active role in democracy, and become part of the dedicated team working to make the election process easy and accessible to everyone,” said Ronnie Metsker, Johnson County Election Commissioner.

Election workers must be registered voters in Johnson County, and:

  • Be registered in the election worker pool;
  • Complete required training for that election; and,
  • Receive a polling place assignment from the Election Office.

Workers must be available for the entire Election Day, beginning at least one hour prior to the opening of the polls. Voting in the August primary will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Presidential election polls in November will open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
