(KMOV) -- Both St Louis City and St Louis County are hiring poll workers for the February 7th primary election.

The St. Louis County Board of Elections still needs to hire between 300 and 400 workers who will be paid $100 to $130 for the election day work.  Additional training is required and the county will pay $30 to $60 for the time.  The election board is hiring poll workers, assistant supervisors, and supervisors.
