Positions are available for election clerks, provisional ballot judges and supervisors. Pay begins at $120 for election day, plus $37.50 for training.

A limited number of positions are available for half-day shifts, which pay $7.50 per hour.

Workers must be registered voters in Sedgwick County. Sixteen- or 17-year-olds, who if not for their age would otherwise be eligible to vote, also can apply.
