INDIANAPOLIS -- You can help make sure every vote is counted on Election Day.

The Marion County Clerk's office has 500 volunteers signed up, but an additional 100 people are needed.  

Volunteers will help keep lines moving on Election Day.  They will also process applications and ballots.

Absentee ballots cannot be counted until November 8 under state law.

In addition, Marion County is required to count the ballots in one central location. The process could take some time with an estimated 70,000 people expected to vote early by person or by mail.

Extra time is also needed to count because the ballots must be sorted by precinct.

In order to volunteer you must be a registered voter in Marion County.

You will be paid between $35 and $150 depending on the number of hours you work and in what capacity.

Call the Marion County Clerk's Office at (317) 327-5100 to sign up.

They will assign you to a shift and you will also be trained prior to starting that shift.
