Bilingual Voters Needed for 2018 Gubernatorial Election

Due to the diversity within the County, the Montgomery County Board of Elections is in need of bilingual voters for the upcoming Gubernatorial Primary Election to serve as election workers at polling places.

To qualify for the paid positions, individuals must be at least 16 years old; registered to vote in the State of Maryland; able to speak, read and write the English language; and cannot hold or be a candidate for public or party office.

Students who are interested must demonstrate to the Maryland State Board of Elections that they meet all qualifications for registration in the state.   Student Service Learning (SSL) credits will be given to teens in lieu of the stipend, according to a news release.

Training will be required for election workers which includes classroom training and an online quiz.

Primary elections in the state of Maryland will be held on June 26.

    Bilingual workers at polling locations for the Governor’s election? The ONLY voters who should be eligible to vote should speak English and be U.S. citizens. If they are not, they should not be permitted to vote. There should be no need for bilingual workers at any polling station. Speaking English should be a prerequisite for ANY American election. This is outrageous!!
