Alameda County needs poll workers to help with the June 5, 2012 Presidential Primary Election. Poll workers earn between $110 and $180 for their service. Applicants must be a registered voter and attend a mandatory training class prior to Election Day.
High school students (16 years of age or older) are also eligible to work as poll workers through Alameda County's Student Poll Worker Program. Students must be in good academic standing, receive faculty permission and attend a mandatory training prior to Election Day.
Bilingual poll workers are also needed and must be fluent in English and Chinese, English and Spanish, English and Filipino/Tagalog or English and Vietnamese. They must also be a registered voter and attend a mandatory training prior to Election Day.
In addition to gaining the rewarding experience of being part of the election process, bilingual poll workers will be paid an extra amount for their Election Day service, including an additional bilingual poll worker training and fluency assessment.
