November 3, 2012 (San Diego) – Poll workers are still in demand for the Nov. 6 Presidential General Election. The Registrar of Voters needs a variety of positions filled.

A high demand remains for bilingual workers especially those who speak Chinese and Vietnamese.

In addition, the Registrar needs standby workers to fill in for people who drop out at the last minute. The need is especially great in the neighborhoods listed below:

Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $75 to $175 depending on the assignment and those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if they are assigned to provide language assistance to voters. Poll workers can be assigned to neighborhoods other than their own.

Interested poll workers must be U.S. citizens, registered or eligible to be registered voters in the state of California and have transportation to their assigned polling location.
