Registrar Asking for Public’s Help on Election Day


October 30, 2010 (San Diego)--Get an inside look at how the election process works by becoming a poll worker on Election Day--and get paid.


Poll Workers are still needed in several neighborhoods for the Gubernatorial General Election on November 2, especially those who are bilingual in Spanish, Filipino and Vietnamese. Neighborhoods and languages include:

• Clairemont, Mira Mesa, Rancho Penasquitos, Del Dios (Vietnamese)
• Encanto, La Mesa, Lakeside, Spring Valley, Chollas Park, City Heights, Middletown, Normal Heights (Vietnamese, Spanish)
• Encinitas, Solana Beach (English)


Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $75 to $150, depending on the assignment, and may be asked to standby to fill positions as they open in the days approaching the election. Poll workers must be U.S. Citizens, registered voters and have transportation to their assigned polling location. They also need access to the internet to complete an online training.

Apply to become a poll worker using the Registrar’s online application. For more information, call (858) 565-5800 or e-mail pollworker@sdcounty.ca.gov.
