The Riverside County registrar's office is looking for poll workers for the upcoming June 5 election who can speak both English and Spanish.
An announcement posted Friday by the registrar states there are openings for bilingual poll workers all throughout Riverside County.
"Riverside County’s Latino population is growing and so is the demand for bilingual assistance at the polls," the announcement states.
Those selected will need to attend a 2.5 hour training course to learn the job and election procedures.
According to the announcement, there are two main types of workers: inspectors and precinct officers. Inspectors will get paid up to $125, plus $20 for training. Precinct Officers will earn up to $90, plus $20 for training.
"Persons interested in participating in this vital and interesting process should call the Registrar of Voters Office, Election Officers and Polls Division, at (951) 486-7341 or (877) 663-9906," the announcement says.
