Fulton County Democrats seek poll workers for primary

Fulton County Democrats are looking for a few more people to work the polls during the upcoming primary. 

Fulton County Democratic Party Chair Josh Zehner said the job is not only a paid position, but also a great way to learn about how the election process runs. No skills are required to become a poll worker, other than being over the age of 16 and a resident of Fulton County. 

Current Indiana law allows high school students over the age of 16 to sign up as poll workers on Election Day under provisions which vary from county to county. Zehner said he pushed for it to be approved in Fulton County prior to election time. 



Days and times needed for the polls include early voting on April 27 and May 4 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., where they will only need two poll workers each day. On Election Day on May 7 from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. they will need 24 workers. 

Those interested in being a poll worker can reach out to Zehner by email at info@fultoncountydems.org and include their name, phone number, address and date they're interested in working.

The deadline for signup is April 5.
