Natchitoches Parish Clerk of Court’s office is looking for additional Election Commissioners

Natchitoches Parish Clerk of Court David Stamey announces that the Clerk of Court’s office will be holding a School of Instruction for new election commissioners. It will be held at the main courtroom of the Natchitoches Parish Courthouse, 200 Second Street, on Tuesday February 22, 2022 at 5:30 pm.

The school is for new persons wanting to be certified as Election Commissioners. If you are already an Election Commissioner, you do not have to attend.

Stamey stated that Natchitoches Parish is lucky to have great commissioners but with turnover, he is always looking for new commissioners throughout the parish. The office operates 50 precincts at 42 different polling places when holding parish wide elections.

The qualifications to serve include:

You must be a qualified voter who does not require assistance in voting. You cannot be a candidate in the election or have an immediate family member who is a candidate at the precinct in which you serve. To become an election commissioner, you cannot have been convicted of an election offense. You must attend the course of instruction for new election commissioners.

By attending this school, you would be eligible to be selected to work at one of the election precincts on Election Day. Pay is $200 per election.
