  14. Notice to Applicant - Please read before you click submit.
    • No applicant is guaranteed an assignment. Several factors affect election worker selection including site party balance and balance of experience. 
    • Selected applicants are considered temporary contract workers with no guarantee of employment or benefits other than election stipend pay.  
    • Applicants must attend mandatory in-person training in Bisbee and work as assigned to receive election stipend pay. Failure to complete in-person training and/or failure to report to the assigned Vote Center disqualifies an individual from receiving any compensation for services.
    • Compensation of $600 or more in a calendar year is subject to tax withholding. 
    • Workers are paid via check mailed to their address approximately 30 days after the worked election.
    • The Cochise County Elections Department can dismiss an individual for failing to attend training, arriving late to the polling site on Election Day, misconduct at the polling site to include partisan conduct, poor customer service, neglect of duty, insubordination, etc. 
    • Applicants agree to remain an eligible voter and must inform the Elections Department in writing if they change party affiliation.
    • Early notice of a scheduling conflict does not disqualify applicants from selection for a future election, but conflict disclosure after assignment which negatively impacts a polling site may be cause for removal from the poll worker contact list. 
    • Election workers work an average of 15 hours straight on Election Day, and poll workers may not leave their location until dismissed after polls close. 
    • Communication is by email; applicants must have an active email and be in the habit of checking it regularly.
