Julian - Poll Workers Needed

 

Last updated 5/17/2016 at 10:20am



Poll workers are needed in Julian, especially those who are bilingual in any one of eight specific languages, for the June 7 Presidential Primary Election.

The Registrar’s office is required by federal law to provide bilingual speakers and voting materials to voters who speak Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.

In addition, the Registrar needs standby poll workers who can be assigned on short notice. Standbys who can also speak a second language are in demand, too. Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $100 to $175 depending on the assignment, and those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if they are assigned specifically to provide language assistance to voters. Poll workers must be registered voters in the state of California or must be permanent residents in the United States and have transportation to their assigned polling location; they will also need access to the internet to complete an online training and attend a two-hour class.
