WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - The Yolo County Elections Office is looking for poll workers to run the polling places for the June 5th General Primary. “We are in particular need of those who are multilingual. The most critical language needs are Spanish, Chinese (Cantonese/Mandarin), and Korean, but other language needs include Punjabi, Russian and Tagalog”, explains Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Clerk/Recorder/Assessor. In order to be a poll worker, you must be available to work on Election Day from 6:00 a.m. until all tasks are completed (around 10:00 p.m.), have transportation to and from the polling place, and be willing to attend a mandatory training prior to Election Day. You must be able to read and write English. Those on parole or in prison on a felony conviction may not be poll workers.

Poll workers are compensated with a stipend for the entire day, depending upon their role.  Precinct Inspectors are compensated $155 and Judges are compensated $130, with an additional $20 for attending the training and $10 for bilingual pay.
