If you answered yes to all of those questions than you may be great applicant to work as a student election assistant for the Step UP program at the polls during this  election.

Those who qualify and are able to work the whole election day, from 5:30 a.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m. will be paid $125 on Election Day.
