Just months after a major election, Onondaga County is busy gearing up for another big voting day. County election officials say they have primary and general elections later this year. Many offices are involved, including Syracuse mayor and Common Council members, Onondaga County legislature members, along with town and village positions.
Those elections also require a lot of help - 2000 election inspectors are needed to cover the county's 181 polling places. Inspectors are paid to spend a long day at the polls - hours typically are from 5:30AM to 9:30PM.
Training is required to be an instpector, and the elections commission office is holding classes right now. To learn more, call the elections commission office at 315-435-VOTE, or visit the election commission website.
