Help Wanted: Workers Needed for Upcoming Elections

Recent retirees looking for something meaningful to do with their time are invited to come join the important work of helping run St. Charles County Elections.

The Election Authority needs to hire dozens of workers this year—of all age groups—but there may be something special about the job that appeals to mature adults with a sense of civic duty, who enjoy working side by side with others. 

“We’re looking for people who want engagement with the political process beyond voting,” says Assistant Director of Elections Amy Abert.

Abert says they’ve also had some activists apply, interested in making sure the elections are run fairly.

“We’ve won some converts from people who came in with suspicions, but then learned how many safeguards we have to protect the integrity of the vote,” Abert said.

More than 200,000 people are expected to cast their ballots in elections slated for April, August, and November.

Twenty workers are needed right now to get ready for the April election, and another 50 will be hired ahead of the November contest.

Abert says it helps to be a people person who likes to help others.

“There’s always somebody in front of you,” Amy says, “and it’s a lot of standing on your feet talking with the public.”

The job pays $15/hour, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. Those wishing to work part-time may also apply.

Republicans and Democrats are needed to provide members of both parties.
