Gwinnett officials are looking for some help for Election Day.
The county is still in need of poll workers, who could earn $110 to $250 a day, albeit a very long day. Officials must report to their polls by 6 a.m. and work for about 14 hours.
"We have a busy elections season ahead of us and with more than 150 polling locations in Gwinnett, it will take several thousand poll officials to staff an election," said Elections Supervisor Lynn Ledford.
To qualify, applicants must be a U.S. citizen and resident of Gwinnett, or a Gwinnett government employee, be at least 16 years old and not holding or running for public office.
The pay includes a required training session, and applicants must have access to a computer to complete online training.
Applications are available at www.gwinnettcountyjobs.com. For more information, visit www.gwinnettelections.com.
Early voting info
Ledford had a few more election updates this week, with the July 31 primary around the corner.
This Saturday is the only weekend day when people can cast ballots, other than by mail.
Registered voters can come to the elections office at 455 Grayson Highway, Suite 200 in Lawrenceville between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday.
Then, beginning Monday through Friday, voters can venture either to the Lawrenceville office or four satellite locations to vote from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Those locations include the Centerville Community Center in Snellville, George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center in Suwanee, Dacula Park Activity Building in Dacula and Lucky Shoals Park Community Recreation Center in Norcross.
Special election update
Finally, commissioners set a qualifying period and fee for the upcoming District 1 special election.
While Jace Brooks and Laurie McClain are set to square off in the primary for the term beginning in January, a special election was set for November after Shirley Lasseter resigned following a guilty plea on a federal bribery charge.
To serve for the last two months of 2012, candidates can qualify beginning at 9 a.m. Aug. 22 and ending at noon Aug. 24.
The qualifying fee of $894 is the same as the full term.
