County Clerk / Recorder / Registrar of Voters Lee Lundrigan, announced poll workers are being sought for the Nov 8 presidential general election.
"We will be staffing up to 180 polling places with four to five volunteer election officers at each location," said Lundrigan. "We are actively recruiting election officers who can speak both English and Spanish so bilingual election officers can be placed at polling places."
Tech savy individuals are also helpful to assist with voting equipment needs.
Non-profit organizations can also adopt a polling place. Members of the non-profit can volunteer to serve together as poll workers for the day and contribute the stipend they receive to support organization fund raising efforts.
To be eligible to work at the polls, a person must be at least 18 years old by election day, a U.S. citizen, a California resident, registered to vote at least 15 days before the election, not in prison or on parole for a felony, and not declared mentally incompetent by court action.
On Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, the polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Election officers must arrive for work at 6 a.m. and leave after the polls are closed at about 9:30 p.m. Each election officer will receive a $95 to $130 stipend for the day.
