Help Others Vote – Bilingual poll workers needed
With only five weeks remaining until election day, bilingual poll workers are still being sought after. Bilinguals have a special, and much-needed ability to communicate with people who require assistance during the voting process and voting offices frequently have difficulty filling all of the positions they require to properly assist all of those in need. If you are interested in working or volunteering during the election, contact your Registrar of Voters Office and offer your services. Chances are, they’ll need your help.
You can also make a simple online search for “bilingual poll workers” + “your city/county/state”. This will undoubtedly result in tons of ads for County Registrars Offices and Department of Elections offices that need temporary poll workers who speak languages ranging from Spanish, to Chinese, to Korean, and many more.
Because you can, you should.
