County Elections office is recruiting for Poll Workers. Adopt-A-Poll Groups and Temporary Help. The Elections office is also seeking temporary election assistants to assist the Election Division with daily activities in the office leading up to Election Day and throughout the canvass activities.

The County Clerk-Recorder’s office is seeking pollworkers and Adopt-a-Poll groups to staff the
polls for the March 3rd election. The County employs approximately 1,000 precinct workers to
work at the polls on Election Day. Pollworkers must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen and a
registered voter in California or a lawful permanent resident of the United States. County Clerk-
Recorder Tommy Gong states, “Be part of democracy by performing your civic duty assisting
voters on Election Day.”

Adopt-a-Polls are great fundraisers for service clubs, church groups, and non-profit organizations
where groups utilize their members to fill the pollworker slots at a precinct, which can be
performed in shifts. An organization can earn from $448-$525 for working on Election Day and
attending the precinct worker training sessions.

The Clerk-Recorder’s office is also seeking Temporary Election Assistants to assist the Election
Division with daily activities in the office leading up to Election Day and throughout the canvass
activities leading up to the certification of the election. Gong states, “It’s a great way for interested
members of the community to get a behind-the-scenes view of what it takes to conduct an
election, especially with new requirements placed upon the counties with legislative mandates.”
