November Election Officers Needed
Good afternoon, everyone! We’re the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters’ Office. We organize, manage and operate all Federal, State and local public elections in our county. We’re new to Nextdoor, so we wanted to introduce ourselves. From time to time we will issue information to inform you about elections and voting. We will also ask for your help and participation, as we do in the message below. We encourage you to stay informed about election procedures in Santa Clara County. We are working to make voting easier and more convenient than ever before. Thank you for your attention and support. Please see below.
Dear Santa Clara County Residents,
This November 6, give a day to democracy! The Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters’ Office (ROV) needs over 5,000 volunteer Election Officers at polling locations for the General Election. Bilingual positions are available in 19 different languages. (See list below.)
Anyone can be an Election Officer if they are a U.S. citizen and registered voter (last day to register for the November 6 General Election is October 22), a legal permanent resident 18 or older, or high school student 16 years or older, with both parental and principal permission.
Election Officers will receive a stipend of up to $200 for their services, and an additional bonus if they are bilingual in one of the listed languages. Training is provided. Classes will begin September 22 and are filling up right now.
Bilingual individuals are needed who speak English and one of the following: Spanish Vietnamese, Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwanese), Tagalog, Korean, Russian, Farsi, Punjabi, Japanese, Hindi, Telugu, Portuguese, Khmer, Syriac, Tamil, Gujarati and Nepali.
