Poll Workers Sought, Especially Those Who Speak Spanish, Filipino
The Clark County Election Department is looking for 300 to 400 citizens to work at the polls during Election Day and/or during early voting, particularly those who can speak Spanish or Filipino in addition to English.
The pay is $120 on Election Day and $8.25 per hour during the early voting period. The primary election will be held June 10 and the general election is set for Nov. 4. The early voting periods are May 24 through June 6 for the primary and Oct. 18-31 for the general.
“These are critically important jobs,” said Registrar of Voters Joseph Gloria. “Without these poll workers, we could not put on an election. It gives them an opportunity to participate in the process.”
To be a poll worker, one must be a registered voter in Clark County, not a candidate or a relative of a candidate, able to perform all duties, able to work about 14 hours straight if working on Election Day, and flexibility in scheduling if working during the early voting period. Prospective workers also need to attend a training class and pass a hands-on evaluation.
To apply, visit www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/vote, log on at “Registered Voter Services” and submit an online application – or call the Election Department at (702) 455-2815.
