Election Officers Needed

Are you interested in earning up to $200 while serving the community and seeing democracy in action? The Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters Office needs 5,000 to 6,000 Election Officers to work polling locations for the June 5, 2018 Election. Bilingual positions are available in up to 19 different languages. (See list below.) If interested, apply online at: https://www.sccgov.org/sites/rov/volunteer/ pages/officer.aspx.

In addition to Election Day workers, the Registrar’s office is hiring full-time temporary positions for its Early Vote Centers that open 10 days before the election. These officers will receive three weeks of training to operate the seven full-service facilities around the county.

Previous clerical experience is required for Early Vote Center workers. Anyone can be an election officer as long as they are a U.S. citizen and registered voter, a legal permanent resident 18 or older, or high school student at least 16 years old. Election officers will receive a stipend of up to $200 for their services, including a bonus for being bilingual. Training is provided and classes will begin soon.

Early Vote Center applicants have additional vetting as potential County employees and are especially encouraged to apply immediately. For more information about election officers or Early Voting Center positions, contact the Registrar of Voters’ Office at 1-408-299-POLL (7655). Online sign-up for election officers is available under the “Volunteer” tab at www.sccvote.org. Bilingual individuals are needed who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwanese), Tagalog, Korean, Russian, Farsi, Punjabi, Japanese, Hindi, Telugu, Portuguese, Khmer, Syriac, Tamil, Gujarati and Nepali.
