Poll workers sought for San Diego June election

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego County Registrar’s Office is looking for bilingual poll workers for the June 3 Gubernatorial Primary Election.

The county said this week that it is looking for people who speak Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese, Chinese, Khmer, Japanese, Korean and Hindu.

Counties are required by federal law to have bilingual workers on hand and provide voting materials for Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese speakers. However, according to the registrar’s office, a recent survey by the University of California, Berkley, found a need for those who speak Khmer, Japanese, Korean and Hindu.

Poll workers must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and registered to vote in California. They will have to attend a two-hour class. Workers will receive a stipend ranging from $75 to $175.
