Pollworkers Still Needed For Some Communities

Los Angeles County Acting Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean Logan announced that additional pollworkers are needed to staff polling places for the June 3, 2008, Statewide Direct Primary Election for certain communities. Pollworkers serve on the frontline of democracy, said Logan. Their commitment to public service is a tribute to them and their communities.

Active recruitment is still taking place for the following communities and areas: Agoura Hills, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Canyon Country, Castaic, Hermosa Beach, San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita, Studio City, Malibu, Malibu Heights, Pasadena, Topanga, West Hills, and West Hollywood.

Pollworkers must be available between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. to set up the polls, provide assistance to voters, and conduct poll closing procedures. Pollworkers are compensated $80 for working Election Day plus $25 for attending a 1-1/2 hour training session. In addition, pollworkers who served during the February 5th Presidential Primary and who will work in the upcoming June Statewide Direct Primary Election and November General Election will be paid a $75 bonus.

Training sessions are conducted throughout Los Angeles County in the days prior to the election. A schedule of classes, pollworker training videos, and training materials can be found on the RR/CC’s website www.lavote.net under POLLWORKER INFO. Additionally, pollworker training videos are available at county libraries.
