County Seeks Poll Workers for June Primary Election

New Jersey’s primary elections will take place on Tuesday, June 4. In-person early voting will run from May 29 through June 2. In NJ, all primary elections—presidential, U.S. Senate and House—will take place simultaneously.

U.S. primaries started in Iowa and New Hampshire and will run through September. The U.S. General Election Day is on Tuesday, November 5.

The NJ Department of State Division of Elections is currently seeking poll workers. Participants will be compensated $21.43 per hour on in-person early voting days and $300 for the Election Day shift. Every prospective poll worker can specify the days they are available to work.

Requirements: All poll workers must be U.S. citizens who reside in the state of New Jersey. They must be at least 16 years of age. Those aged 16-17 don’t need to be registered voters and will only be allowed to work limited hours per shift. Adult citizens do need to be registered as voters.

Those interested in working at the polls should submit an online application at
