Listen: Ryan Ronco, Placer County Clerk-Recorder-Registrar of Voters
The Placer County Elections Office still needs poll workers in Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay and North Lake Tahoe for the upcoming March 3 presidential primary election.
Staffing Placer County’s polling sites each election takes more than 1,500 poll workers, and Placer’s Elections Office is now accepting applications for all positions for the March 3 presidential primary election. It’s a great chance to give back to the community, be a part of the excitement of our democratic process and earn a little money, too.
Poll workers must be at least 18 years old (unless participating in the student poll worker program), be registered to vote in California or a permanent legal resident of the United States, provide their own transportation and be able to work from 6 a.m. to around 9 p.m. on the day of the election.
Poll worker duties include opening and closing polling sites, verifying voter names on election rosters and issuing and collecting ballots. Pay ranges from $100 to $160 and includes a stipend of $25 for attending poll worker training.
Volunteering can be a great fundraising opportunity for service clubs or community organizations. Staffing an entire precinct can earn a group up to $900.
