A hundred full-time jobs just opened up in Philly as the city looks to fill out the staff at its elections offices ahead of November.
The 100 clerical assistant jobs with the Board of Elections pay $13.75 an hour, City Commissioner Omar Sabir said in a news release.
Hiring is taking place immediately as the city looks to open more satellite elections offices. At those locations, voters can register, apply for a mail-in ballot, and cast one all in the same place.
