Seeking the self-unemployed

Those casting about for that perfect Austin-style job, the one that pays above minimum wage, that’s a full-time gig for a limited term, and that teaches something about life and politics, should check with the Travis County elections division.

Primary season means that more help’s needed. Van drivers will deliver voting equipment, signs, tables, and chairs and will perform other similar tasks as needed. Supply clerks are needed in the warehouse. Training troubleshooters will assist election officials and teach them how to conform with all laws, policies, and procedures. Technical troubleshooters will prepare the voting devices and equipment for delivery to the field and may be called to voting sites to assist and offer technical support. Also needed will be call-center representatives to respond to questions about polling locations and the like. Clerks will also be needed in connection with voting by mail. Depending on projected voter turnout sometimes additonal workers are needed for election night.

Sometimes these openings are filled almost immediately; sometimes they’re open almost right up to election day. An application may be picked up at and returned to the the county offices at 5501 Airport Boulevard. More information may be obtained by calling 854-4996 or sending e-mail.
