Riverbank city officials are looking for poll workers to serve during the upcoming special municipal election on Tuesday, June 4.

Applications are available from Riverbank City Clerk/Elections Official Annabelle Aguilar and must be submitted by Tuesday, April 30.

According to information from the city, to qualify to serve, a poll worker must be a registered California voter and duties will include helping set up and close polling places, helping voters understand their rights, and protecting ballots and voting equipment. Both inspectors and clerks are needed, and there is mandatory training provided. Poll workers will receive a stipend of $150 for Inspector and $110 for Clerk plus an extra $30 to attend mandatory training. Bilingual English/Spanish speakers are encouraged to apply.

The election will fill one vacant term on the city council, the unexpired term of Richard O’Brien, who left his council seat in a successful run for mayor in November.

The deadline to apply for a poll worker position is Tuesday, April 30, 2013.
