SAN MATEO, Calif. (BCN) - San Mateo County is looking for a few good people - actually, 800 people - to help with the upcoming consolidated municipal, school and special district election, a county official said.
The county's Registration and Elections Division plans to train about 800 poll workers for the Nov. 7 consolidated election, Mark Church, the county's chief elections officer, said.
Poll workers, also referred to as election officers, will manage 162 precincts on Election Day, Church said.
To apply to serve as a poll worker, people can call (650) 286-2810 or apply online at www.shapethefuture.org under the Poll Workers tab, Church said. Potential poll workers must attend a 2.5- to 3-hour training session in October or November.
Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $115 to $140 for the day, plus $25 for the time in the training class if they serve on Election Day.
