The Santa Barbara County Registrar of Voters office is seeking volunteers to serve as poll workers for the March 3 presidential primary election.
County officials are seeking community participation to staff the nearly 170 precinct boards for the election. Those who work at a polling place will receive a stipend of $180 to $240 for Election Day and to attend training.
Each polling place has one or more precinct boards comprised of one inspector and two to four clerks, as well as a coordinator and, if needed, a traffic clerk, according to a news release.
Those interested in being a poll worker must meet the following criteria: be a registered voter in the state of California, lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the U.S. or eligible to register to vote; be able to follow written and verbal instructions; be available to serve from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Election Day, or until after all of the closing procedures have been completed; and be available to attend mandatory training.
