City looking to hire workers for election

CBJ: ‘Civic-minded’ Juneauites should apply

The City and Borough of Juneau is looking to hire elections workers for the upcoming Oct. 5, 2021, municipal elections, the city announced Wednesday in a news release.

In the coming weeks the city will be hiring or rehiring “civic-minded and hard-working individuals,” for a variety of roles to support the elections, according to CBJ. Roles include election call center workers, ballot drop box teams, on-call election workers and Canvass Review Board workers.

Dates, times, and duration of work will vary depending on need, the city said, and anyone interested in applying is encouraged to contact Municipal Clerk and Election Official Beth McEwen at (907)586-5278 or city.clerk@juneau.org.

Pay for election workers varies depending on the particular job and duties involved. Interested people will be asked to submit an updated CBJ job application, available at the city’s website.

Qualified election workers must be registered to vote in Alaska, and “enjoy interaction with the public; perform duties in a neutral/non-partisan fashion; and comply with all CBJ election laws, policies, and procedures, and maintain the confidentially of voter information in accordance with the State of Alaska Division of Election rules and regulations,” according to CBJ.

Election workers should not work or volunteer on the campaign of a candidate or ballot initiative that may appear on the municipal ballot, according to the city. An election worker cannot have a familial relationship with a candidate on the municipal ballot, including any write-in candidates. Familial relationship includes mother, mother-in-law, stepmother; father, father-in-law, stepfather; sister, sister-in-law, stepsister; brother, brother-in-law, stepbrother; spouse; or person sharing the same living quarters, according to CBJ.
