Alameda County is seeking poll workers to run the upcoming June 3 statewide primary election, county officials said Monday.
People who are bilingual and speak English as well as Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer or Korean are particularly needed.
Bilingual poll workers can be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents of the U.S. with a green card who need to pass a fluency assessment and attend a training class prior to Election Day, officials said.
Poll workers earn between $110 and $190 for their service, with bilingual poll workers making extra.
Potential poll workers can apply by contacting the Registrar of Voters office at www.acgov.org/rov/workers.htm, firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 272-6971.
