Election workers – What better way to help ensure the integrity of elections than helping work inside the polling place on election day??? We are currently looking for clerks and backup judges to help work the election. While individual judges typically decide who their clerks will be on election day, we maintain a listing of those able and willing to serve. Judges and Clerks are (modestly) paid, and training is available. To sign up to be an election worker or judge, please send us an email with your name, contact information, and any election experience you might have. Prior experience is NOT required.
Student Clerks – High School students at least 16 years of age are eligible to work as clerks in elections. Training is provided, and they are paid positions. According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, the purpose of this legislation is two-fold:
1. Introduces students to the electoral process and inspires them to take an interest in their government
2. Provides election authorities with an additional reservoir of persons who can serve at the polls
Eligible students must be:
* A U.S. Citizen and resident of Williamson County
* 16 years or older on Election Day
* Enrolled in school (public, private or home school) with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
* Have the written consent of a parent/guardian and school official to participate
The Texas Education Code includes service as an election clerk as an acceptable “excused absence”. For more information, please send an email to elections@williamsoncountygop.
