Bilingual Chinese, Vietnamese Poll Workers Needed For Special Election

More bilingual Chinese and Vietnamese volunteers are needed to work at polling places for the city of San Diego's Nov. 19 special mayoral election, the county Registrar of Voters said Wednesday.

"The ROV has more than 2,200 volunteers who have committed to serve their community at the polls this year, but we still have an urgent need for 50 more Chinese bilingual and 30 more Vietnamese bilingual poll workers," said Registrar Michael Vu. "Our bilingual volunteers help citizens who are not yet proficient in English to vote at the polls."

Bilingual poll worker volunteers can earn a stipend of $90 to $110 for the day's work.

The registrar's office will provide training for Chinese and Vietnamese speakers.

Polling place volunteers must be U.S. citizens, a registered voter in California and able to read and write the English language.

For questions about being a poll worker, where the polls will be located in the city of San Diego and voter registration status, call (858) 565-5800 or visit

Voting will take place on Election Day from 7 a.m. through 8 p.m.

Doesn't anyone feel the need to learn English?? How can they make a reasonable choice
if they can't read or speak the language. How do these language slackers make it through the day? Where do they work?? This is getting insane. How many languages do we have to support here? Betting we would never offer these services for European born citizens. Please don't attack me for these comments. These folks can't read it anyway.
