The Bureau of Elections can dismiss an individual for failure to attend training, misbehavior, poor customer service, neglect of duty, or insubordination, etc. Applicants must attend mandatory training and work as assigned to receive a training stipend. Failure to complete in-person training and/or failure to report to the assigned poling location disqualifies an individual from receiving any compensation for services. Presiding Judges and Machine Judges must have transportation to deliver election materials to the County Clerk’s Office on Election Night. Poll Officials work an average of 12.5 hours a day during Early Voting and 15 hours on Election Day. Compensation of $600 or more in a calendar year is subject to tax withholding.
