The Orange County Registrar of Voters seeks 6,500 people to help carry out Election Day functions on Tuesday, June 3, 2014
“Elections are one of the most critical parts of our form of government in the United States,” Supervisor Todd Spitzer said. “We need citizens to help make Election Day run smoothly and protect the integrity of our electoral process.”
Election Day workers must be United States citizens at least 16 years of age. Election Day workers over 18 must be registered to vote in the State of California. Felons on parole and registered sex offenders are ineligible for these positions.
Bilingual citizens who speak Vietnamese, Chinese, Spanish, or Korean are particularly encouraged to apply to assist the County in complying with the Federal Voting Rights Act.
There are six types of workers needed on Tuesday, June 3:
•Polling Place Inspectors, who each oversee a polling place
•Polling Place Clerks, who each assist the inspector at a polling place
•Election Day Coordinators, who each provide communications and troubleshooting for multiple polling places
•Election Day “A” Team Members, who are dispatched throughout the County in case of emergency
•Election Supply Collection Center Workers, who assist with polling place supplies being returned to the Registrar after polls close
•Election Night Tally Center Operations Workers, who assist with the return of ballots from polling places to the Registrar after polls close
More information on these six positions, including more detailed descriptions of their responsibilities, their hours, and their stipends, are available at www.ocvote.com/volunteer/, where potential Election Day workers can also sign up.
