Ongoing – Placer County Poll Workers Wanted

Staffing Placer County’s polling sites each election takes more than 1,600 poll workers, and the office of elections is now accepting applications for all positions for California’s June 7 presidential primary election and the November 8 presidential general election. It’s a great chance to give back to the community, be a part of the excitement of our democratic process, and earn a little money, too. Poll workers must be at least 18 years old (unless participating in the student poll worker program), be registered to vote in California or a permanent legal resident of the United States, provide their own transportation, and be able to work from 6:00 a.m. to around 9:00 p.m. on the days of the elections. Poll worker duties include opening and closing polling sites, verifying voter names on election rosters, and issuing and collecting ballots. Pay ranges from $85 to $100, with an additional $20 for attending poll worker training, required for certain positions. Volunteering can be a great fundraising opportunity for clubs or organizations. For more information or to apply online, visit placerelections.com/become-a-poll-worker.aspx, or call (530) 886-5650 or 1-800-824-8683.
