SAN DIEGO Standby poll workers are still needed in some neighborhoods for the June 8 primary election, especially those who speak Spanish, Filipino and Vietnamese, San Diego County's registrar of voters said.
Standby poll workers will fill in for those who drop out at the last minute, according to Deborah Seiler.
Poll workers will receive a stipend of $75 to $175, she said. Those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if they are assigned to provide language assistance to voters.
Poll workers must have their own transportation, complete an online training course and attend a two-hour class and one-hour workshop, according to the registrar.
Interested people can apply to become a poll worker by calling the registrar's office at (858) 565-5800, or send an e-mail to pollworkersdcounty.ca.gov.
