The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is Holding a Job Fair and Hiring Thousands for the March, 17 2020 Presidential Primary Election

(Cleveland) – The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections is inviting the public to attend a job fair as part of our effort to hire over 4,000 individuals to assist voters on Election Day as Precinct Election Officials (PEOs).  In addition, there are openings for Ride Along Officials, Drop-off Assistants, Rovers and over 300 openings for

in-house full-time temporary Clerks.

The Presidential Primary Election falls on St. Patrick’s Day.  “Competition with the holiday is making it a challenge to find all of the people we need to administer this very important Election,” said Anthony Perlatti, Director of the Board of Elections. “Attending the job fair is a great way to learn about our work and how easy it is to join our great team. There are openings for every skill level so we will seriously consider every individual who walks through the doors,” said Perlatti.

Precinct Election Officials earn $172.10 and clerks are paid $11.50 per hour for assignments that can last several weeks to three months dependent on the assignment.
