Los Angeles County needs poll workers to volunteer for the primary election Tuesday, June 6th.

Although the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office has currently recruited more than 24,000 poll workers, there is still a “critical shortage” in some areas of the county, officials say.

With a recent Board of Supervisors approval of a poll worker stipend increase, poll workers will be compensated $80 for working election day and a $25 bonus for attending a 90-minute training session.

McCormack said the county is especially interested in bilingual poll workers who can speak Cantonese, Japanese, Mandarin, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog or Vietnamese.

Communities with a priority need include Agoura Hills, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Castaic, Glendale, Hermosa Beach, Lakewood, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Redondo Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Santa Clarita, Santa Monica, Torrance and West Hollywood.
