Waterford uses e-poll books in all our elections. This laptop computer contains all the voter information, and the software issues the ballot number to the voter and records other activities throughout the day on Election Day. The day starts at 6:00 a.m. at your assigned precinct location. The computer has a few start-up activities along with preparing the polling location. Then, voters will come to you throughout the day to get their ballots. The polls close at 8:00 p.m., and several reports need to be created and saved using the software, and then the laptop is shut down all while other workers are closing the polling location. This process can be very fast or take a little time if you don’t immediately balance. The day ends around 9:00 p.m.
In the course of the day, you get 2-1 hour breaks. You work with 5-6 other people and will receive two (2) one (1) hour breaks. Election workers' pay starts at $190.00 plus additional pay for training.
