Q May the election commission lawfully hire and pay an individual as a poll worker who has been convicted of a disenfranchising crime but had suffrage restored by the Mississippi Legislature?

A Yes. Section 23-15-231 requires poll managers to be qualified electors of the county. Having suffrage restored, he is now a qualified elector, assuming that he is also a legitimate resident of that county and properly registered. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Ivy, June 21, 2019)
