Butler County in need of 500 more poll workers for Election Day


At least 500 additional poll workers are needed for the Nov. 7 General Election, according to the Butler County Board of Elections.

Workers are needed throughout the county, with particular need in the Middletown and Oxford areas, officials said.

“Our poll workers serve on a team on Election Day to check in voters and make sure every eligible voter’s vote counts,” said Diane Noonan, Director of the Butler County Board of Elections. “By serving as a poll worker, you can not only earn some extra money, but you also can take pride in knowing you are serving your community and democracy.”
