County Seeks Poll Workers

The Santa Barbara County Registrar of Voters office is seeking volunteers to serve as poll workers for the Sept. 14 California Gubernatorial Recall Election. Community participation is always essential to staffing the precincts and polling places for the election. With this election taking place on such a short schedule, the Elections Office has less time than usual to recruit poll workers. With just a little over a month before poll worker training begins, the Elections Office still needs to recruit an additional 200 poll workers. Poll workers who work at a polling place receive a stipend of $180 to $240 for Election Day and to attend training. To learn more about the poll worker program and training process, visit
