Waterford uses e-poll books in all our elections. This is a laptop computer that 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 am at your assigned precinct location. The computer has a few start up activities along with preparing the polling location. Then throughout the day voters will come to you to get their ballot. The polls close at 8:00 pm and there are several reports that 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 it may take a little time if you don’t immediately balance. The day ends around 9:00 pm.
In the course of the day you get 2-1 hour breaks. You work with 5-6 other people and most likely you would be in a precinct with dual computers that work in sync. Election workers pay starts at $136.00 plus additional pay for training. There is one more election in 2016: Tuesday, November 8th.
