Critical Need for Election Day Workers
Austin —Travis County Clerk’s office needs civic-minded workers for Tuesday’s election.
“We have a critical need for about 100 election workers,” said Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir. “We’ve recruited quite a few precinct judges who are new to the process, and they need help finding clerks to work with them.”

Precincts that need workers are concentrated in the northern and western parts of the county, but positions are available across the county.
