Student Pollworkers Needed
Posted by Alex Nochez on Jan 28, 2014 - 4:07:20 AM

MALIBU — Students are encouraged to apply to become a poll worker for the city's General Municipal Election by February 12.
The election is on April 8.


The Student Poll Worker program is designed to get high school students to become involved in the election process by having them actually work during an election. The process to become a student poll worker involves completing a nomination form that has to be filled in by the student, his or her parent and a nominating history teacher. In addition, the student must be at least 16 years old and have an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher.


If a student is chosen to work at a polling place, the city states that they must attend a training session on April 3 at 4:00 p.m. in City Hall. The student will then be designated a polling place for the election on April 8, and the city states in a letter from January 7 that they will do their best to place a student in a location close to their home or school, even if it is not guaranteed.


The work that will be expected includes setting up and closing the polling place, processing voters and counting ballots. Students are expected to arrive at 6:30 a.m. on Election Day to work until 9:30 p.m. Their efforts will be rewarded in the form of an $85 check for working and a $25 check for having attended the training session. Students should expect their compensation four to six weeks following the election.


The city also advises parents provide students with transportation to attend both the training session and Election Day.


The nomination form can be acquired from the city website, which can then be submitted to City Clerk Lisa Pope at or by fax to 310-456-2760. For more information, she can be reached via the same email or by phone at 310-456-2489 ext. 228.
