The Town of Woodruff is in need of poll workers. There will be no more elections this year, but there four in 2024. The town board will be appointing the next term of election workers in December, so individuals are asked to contact the town by Dec. 1.
Being an election official is an important decision that requires commitment and the desire to be a public servant. It can feel very rewarding to know you’re serving as a gatekeeper to democracy, and it’s a nice way to get to know other people in your town.
Poll workers are paid for training and elections, and participate in shifts Election Day. Training is required every two years, but it’s not generally time-consuming.
Apply to be a poll worker in Woodruff by calling the town office at 715-356-9421. We would love to have you on board.
The deputy clerk's position is currently open to a smart individual with a kind disposition who would like to be involved in the inner workings of local government and serve the wonderful community of Woodruff.

Essentially, a deputy clerk learns many of the tasks of a town clerk and they vary widely throughout the year. For every larger task like an annual elector meeting, budget hearing, tax preparation, election or board of review, there are a hundred small tasks to keep it all rolling. It's cyclic yet never boring, and the stellar staff of all departments and elected officials work in harmony for the best possible outcomes. The Town of Woodruff is a really great place to work.
The deputy clerk is appointed and supervised by me, Woodruff Town Clerk Julie Huotari. I will wait until the right person comes along. Is it you?
