SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Presidential Primary Election is Tuesday, March 3 and the Registrar of Voters still needs poll workers throughout the county.

In particular, there is a need for additional poll workers in Alpine, Clairemont, Del Mar Heights, Descanso, El Cajon, Julian, La Jolla, La Mesa, Linda Vista, Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Peñasquitos, Santee, Tierrasanta, UCSD and University City.

Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $100 to $175 depending on the assignment.

Poll workers must be registered voters in California or must be permanent residents in the United States and have transportation to their assigned polling location. They will also need access to the internet to complete an online training and attend a two-hour class.
