Volunteer to be a Poll Worker

The June 5 Gubernatorial Primary Election will be here before you know it, so the Registrar of Voters is looking for poll workers now. That’s where you come in. The Registrar looks to County workers first for help.

County employees are valued for their experience working with the public and their excellent customer service skills.

Hundreds of volunteers are needed and the County may give you paid time off for your service. Many employees put together teams with coworkers or family and friends.

Like all poll workers, County employees are paid a stipend to cover expenses associated with this volunteer assignment unless they are unclassified managers. Stipend amounts vary from $100 to $150 with supplements for assigned languages and other requirements. County employees who volunteer may also get approved release time to attend required training.

All volunteers will also get a chance to wear their red, white and blue duds, spend the day getting to know neighbors and fulfill a sense of civic duty at the same time.  

For more detailed requirements, type of positions and stipend amounts, read the County Employee Poll Worker Application and Questions and Answers.

For more information, contact County Employee Poll Worker Coordinator Jean.Vukotich@sdcounty.ca.gov or call (858) 505-7241.
