Poll workers needed for Gov. Recall Election

Kern County Elections – We are preparing for the upcoming Gubernatorial Recall Election that will be conducted on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. For this election, we will have polling locations throughout Kern County. We are still in need of poll workers and are asking if the City of Ridgecrest has available volunteers to serve as poll workers on election day.

To be a poll worker, they must:

• Be a registered voter in Kern County

• Attend a training session

• Be available to work on Election Day from 6:00 a.m. until approximately 10:00 p.m.

• Not be related to or working on a campaign of any candidate currently on the ballot or working with a group in favor or opposing a ballot measure.

We are also seeking volunteers who are bilingual in English and one of the following languages: Spanish, Tagalog, Ilocano and Punjabi to assist our voters.

Anyone interested may apply at: https://www.kernvote.com/Forms/PollWorkerApplication.
