Equipment Managers Program 2018

Many Communities, One Democracy: Sign Up to be an Equipment Manager today!


Democracy doesn’t just happen.  The Cook County Clerk’s office is recruiting college students to serve in suburban precincts for the March 20, 2018 Gubernatorial Primary.  

Local democracy depends on the poll workers who take pride in serving voters in their community each Election Day. These poll workers come together and make it possible for hundreds of their neighbors and fellow citizens to cast their ballots and have their voices heard.

There are two positions available for students: Election Judge or Equipment Manager. Both Election Judges and Equipment Managers assist voters and ensure the polling place is running smoothly. Equipment Managers are also responsible for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment. Due to the additional responsibility, Equipment Managers receive more training and get higher pay. Election Judges earn $190, Equipment Managers earn $340. 

Students will be serving in a suburban precinct and must have access to a car on Election Day.
