Montgomery County needs 100 more Republicans to work polls Tuesday

Equal number of Democrats and Republicans ensures election fairness.

The Montgomery County Board of Elections issued a plea for Republican party members to work the polls for Tuesday’s general election.

“We have more than 100 slots to fill by Election Day, and we need your help,” said Jan Kelly, director of the Montgomery County Board of Elections. “In total, we use about 1,600 precinct election officials each election, and we are running a little short this year.”

An equal number of Democrats and Republican staff polling places to ensure fairness.

Election workers are able to earn $105-$120 on Nov. 6. Workers must be at an assigned polling location from 5:45 a.m. until polls close at 7:30 p.m., providing their own transportation.

Those needed to fill the current shortage must be registered voters affiliated with the Republican Party of Montgomery County. To sign up, contact Nick Brusky at (937) 225-5671 at the Montgomery County Board of Elections.

“These volunteers help safeguard the process so all Ohioans can have confidence in the results,” Kelly said.
