Special Notice for Poll Workers for Indiana’s June 2, 2020 Primary Election

You should not report the stipend you are paid as income when filing your unemployment insurance claim or weekly voucher. Under Executive Order 20-27, stipends paid to those appointed as poll workers for Indiana’s June 2, 2020 Primary Election (work beginning with early absentee in-person voting and ending with tabulation of mailed-in ballots) are not considered deductible income under Indiana unemployment compensation law and should not be reported as income. Reporting your poll worker stipend as income will result in the reduction of your benefits and a delay in claims processing. Any income other than the poll worker stipend should continue to be reported in the weekly filing process.
