Poll workers receive a stipend ranging from $75 to $175 depending on the assignment and those who are bilingual receive an additional $15 if they are assigned to provide language assistance to voters.
Poll workers must be U.S. citizens, registered voters in the State of California and have transportation to their assigned polling location. Depending on the job assignment, they may also need access to the Internet to complete an online training and attend a two-hour class.
