Registrar recruits bilingual poll workers

The Riverside County Registrar of Voters is recruiting bilingual poll workers who want to assist voters on Nov. 6.

Poll workers must be registered to vote.

They can earn up to $125 for serving as a precinct inspector and $90 for serving as a precinct officer. They also earn $20 for attending a two-and-a-half hour training course.

Insider readers might remember that the county registrar was scrambling to have enough bilingual poll workers for the June primary.

Election officials had wanted to have 1,100 assistants for that election, which would have been enough to have at least one at every polling place and have two or three in communities with more Latino voters.

But with just five days before that election, about 900 people had come forward.

If you want to help out for this November’s election, contact the county registrar at (951) 486-7341.
