Poll workers needed for November 19 special election

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Registrar of Voters Office put out a call Thursday for poll workers for the Nov. 19 special mayoral election.

Especially needed are workers who speak English and one or more of the following: Chinese, Filipino, Spanish or Vietnamese.

Chinese speakers are needed in Del Mar Heights, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, University City, Mira Mesa, Rolando and Normal Heights.

Filipino speakers are wanted in Mira Mesa, Encanto, Paradise Hills, Rancho Penasquitos and Rancho Bernardo.

Spanish speakers are needed in Paradise Hills, Encanto, Clairemont, Pacific Beach, Mission Valley and Navajo.

Vietnamese speakers are needed in Rancho Penasquitos, Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, University City, Linda Vista, Encanto, Rolando, Normal Heights, City Heights, Paradise Hills and Tierrasanta.

Eleven candidates qualified for the ballot. They're hoping to finish the term of Bob Filner, who resigned Aug. 30.

If no one receives more than 50 percent of the vote, a runoff election will be held between the top two vote-getters early next year.

Poll workers will get $75 to $175, depending on their assignment. Bilingual poll workers will get an additional $15 if they are assigned to assistant voters.

Poll workers must be U.S. citizens, registered voters in California and have transportation to and from their posts. Some volunteers may need Internet access to complete online training and attend a two-hour class.

Applications are available at sdvote.com, or by calling (858) 565-5800. They can also be requested by email at Pollworkersdcounty.ca.gov.
