Wauwatosa residents can perform civic service and get paid for their efforts. City Clerk Carla Ledesma is seeking people to work at the polls during elections.
The next election is set for April 3, and there are additional dates set for August and November.
Daylong shifts begin as early as 6:15 a.m. and may last until 9 p.m. For the service, residents are paid $100 per election day and $10 for attending a mandatory training session before an election, she said.
To be eligible, a pollworker must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old and be able to work in a team atmosphere.
"Good handwriting, vision, hearing and attention to detail are a plus," Ledesma said. "This is an important civic activity. Poll workers are an important part of the conduct of open, accurate and fair elections."
To participate, call (414) 479-8919 and be prepared to leave a name, address, phone number and political affiliation, if any.
