Get out the vote: Poll workers needed in Alameda County
Alameda County is encouraging citizens to help support a fair and safe election by signing up to be poll workers from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3. No special skills are required; however, you must be a registered California State voter to be eligible. Bilingual poll workers are especially needed.
Poll workers play a critical role in making voting accessible to all community members — while being paid to do so. Tasks include:
- Setting up and closing a polling place
- Helping voters understand their rights
- Protecting ballots and voting equipment
Training will be provided by Alameda County, and you’ll be paid for training as well as time served as a poll worker. Depending on your assignment, you could earn up to $400.
