Community Relations

Equipment Manager Program

Since the 2008 Primary Elections, Loyola University Chicago’s Division of Public Affairs has partnered with the Cook County Clerk’s Office to recruit civic minded Loyola students to serve as Equipment Managers on Election Day. So far, over 500 students have participated in the initiative and each year student involvement continues to grow. If you are a civic minded student who wants to get involved in your community, then this may be a great opportunity for you. The Equipment Manager is responsible for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment on Election Day, and then transmitting the results when the polls close. For their services, new Equipment Managers receive $340, while returning Equipment Managers receive $350.
