In preparation for the upcoming May 6 primary election, the Edgecombe and Nash county Board of Elections are looking for poll workers.

A variety of positions are available, and those interested can contact Edgecombe County Elections Director Jerry Spruell by calling 252-641-7852.

People in Nash County can go to the Board of Election’s website and fill out the online application.

“You can always use additional names,” Spruell said.

Giving out the information does not mean there is a spot open, said John Kearney, Nash County elections director, but people are encouraged to apply.

“We are always looking to put people in our database,” Kearney said.

Another way to get involved is by contacting the party heads, Spruell said.

“They can contact the party chairs or they can contact my office,” Spruell said.

Kearney said Nash County is looking for Republicans voters to volunteer, because right now there are more Democrats who have volunteered.
