Municipalities across Kewaunee County are in need of poll workers for the upcoming partisan primary and general election. The primary is Tuesday (Aug. 11), and the general election is Nov. 3.
Poll worker duties can include checking-in and registering voters, issuing and assisting with ballots, monitoring voting booths and equipment as well as general assistance of cleaning and sanitizing at polling locations.
“Generally, we have an older population helping with elections at our local town halls, but due to COVID-19, we are currently looking for a large number of individuals who are not in a vulnerable category to assist,” County Clerk Jamie Annoye said.
Poll workers must be at least 17 years old, a Kewaunee County resident, live in the municipality that needs assistance, and eligible to vote.
Those who are interested in becoming a poll worker should contact their municipal clerk. For more information, contact the Kewaunee County Clerk’s Office at 920-388-7133 or email Annoye at firstname.lastname@example.org.
