Gwinnett citizens interested in the electoral process are encouraged to attend Gwinnett’s poll official hiring events set for 4 to 7 p.m. April 10 from at Shorty Howell Park Activity Building, 2750 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth and 4 to 7 p.m. April 12 at OneStop Buford, 2755 Sawnee Ave. in Buford.

The Gwinnett County Voter Registrations and Elections Division is looking for citizens of all backgrounds, but has an urgent need for bilingual poll workers, particularly Spanish speakers.

“We need to staff more than 150 polling locations in Gwinnett County for the upcoming elections, and federal law also requires us to have bilingual polling officials,” said Lynn Ledford, Gwinnett County supervisor of elections. “It’s a great opportunity to see what happens on Election Day, plus you can gain valuable work experience and earn $75 to $300 per day.”

Applicants must be at least 16 years old, a U.S. citizen and be able to read, write and speak English. They also must be a Gwinnett resident or a Gwinnett County government employee, and they must have access to a computer for required online training.

Apply online at www.gwinnettcountyjobs.com prior to the event.
