The Union County Board of Elections is seeking bilingual poll workers for Election Day on Tuesday, November 5. In addition to receiving a stipend of $200.00 for the day, poll workers perform a valuable civic service by helping to ensure that every eligible voter can exercise their right to vote on Election Day.
“Bilingual poll workers are especially helpful in our diverse community, so we encourage everyone with a second language to participate in this very important civic service,” said Board of Elections Administrator Nicole DiRado.
Poll workers are available at each polling place in Union County on Election Day. They are trained to answer basic questions that voters may have about the voting process, and to ensure everyone who is eligible to vote is afforded the opportunity to do so.
Any Union County resident who is 18 years or older, and registered to vote in Union County, can qualify to become a poll worker.
No experience is needed. Before Election Day, each poll worker attends a single-session training course.
Persons interested in becoming a poll worker are advised to apply now in order to reserve a spot.
