Citizens interested in the electoral process and who want to give back to the community are invited to attend one of Gwinnett County's four upcoming poll official hiring events in July.
The Gwinnett County Voter Registrations and Elections Division is looking for citizens of all backgrounds, but especially needs bilingual poll workers, particularly Spanish speakers. Gwinnett County elections personnel staff 156 polling locations on Election Day plus eight advance voting locations. To comply with federal law, bilingual polling officials must be available to assist voters at each polling location during elections.
Poll officials can gain valuable work experience and earn $75 to $300 per day.

Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to noon at OneStop Norcross, 5030 Georgia Belle Ct., Norcross
