SANTA MONICA—With the upcoming presidential election approaching, the city of Santa Monica, as well as other cities within the Los Angeles corridor are in need of pollworkers. The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) is looking for individuals to work as pollworkers in one of two roles on Tuesday, November 8.
These two types of pollworkers are Inspectors and Clerks. Inspectors serve as supervisors for polling locations, while Clerks assist with a variety of conventional tasks. Between these two positions, 800 pollworkers are needed within Los Angeles County for a well functioning Election Day.
Those who train to become an Inspector or Clerk are compensated. Pollworkers can earn between $80 and $175 for working on Election Day and attending a training session before the election. Pollworkers must be available between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. to set up the polls, provide assistance to voters, and conduct poll closing procedures.
According to Dean C. Logan from the Los Angeles Registrar County Clerks’ Office, “The Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is responsible for registering voters, maintaining voter files, administering federal, state, local and special elections and verifying initiatives, referenda and recall petitions. Los Angeles County, with more than 500 political districts and 4.8 million registered voters, is the largest and most complex county election jurisdiction in the country.”
