Poll workers needed for February special elections

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Registrar of Voters put out a call Friday for poll workers for special elections in San Diego and Solana Beach on Feb. 11.

In San Diego, a runoff election will determine who will finish the term of ex-Mayor Bob Filner, who stepped down Aug. 30. Councilmen David Alvarez and Kevin Faulconer won the most votes in the primary election.

Solana Beach residents will vote on Proposition B, a ballot measure that would allow special use permits to be issued for the Fletcher Cove Community Center.

According to the registrar's office, there will be 573 polling places in San Diego and eight in Solana Beach.

Poll workers do not need to live in those cities to take part in staffing the polls, but they must have transportation to their assigned location. Depending on the job assignment, they may need access to the Internet to take an online training and attend a two-hour class.

All poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $75 to $175 depending on the assignment. Those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if assigned to provide language assistance to voters.

The registrar's office said people who can speak Chinese, Filipino, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese are especially needed.

Prospective poll workers can apply online at sdvote.com.

More information can be obtained at (858) 565-5800 or email at pollworkersdcounty.ca.gov.

The Registrar of Voters office has moved; the new address is 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123.
