Montgomery County seeks runoff election judges, clerks
Montgomery County is seeking Democratic election judges and clerks to be present at the Texas 2012 primary runoff election July 31.
Democratic judges are required at a precinct to conduct a Democratic runoff election. Without one, voters would have to be turned away at the polls.
The county is recruiting one judge and one election clerk for each of the 86 polling places, as well as additional standby judges and clerks for emergencies.
Both judges and clerks will be paid $8 per hour on the day of the election. Student clerks older than 16 who meet the qualifications will also be paid $8 per hour.
Whichever judge or clerk returns the precinct voter lists and equipment on election night will be paid an additional $15. Payment will be split if both the clerk and judge return the supplies.
Workers can expect to spend 12-14 hours working July 31, but some clerks may work part time.
Montgomery County will pay judges $10 per hour to be trained for four hours. To qualify for training pay, judges must work at least seven hours on election day.
Clerks will be paid $8.50 per hour for completing the online training (also requiring seven hours of work on election day to qualify).
Judges will be paid an additional $8.50 for completing online training (three hours).
Training will take place from 5-9 p.m. July 26.
