Are you in the market for a temporary job? Well, you're in luck.

The San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder's office is looking for people to staff the polls for the Mar. 3 election.

The county employs roughly 1,000 people to work at the polls on election day.

Here are the requirements:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • a U.S. citizen
  • a registered voter in CA or a lawful permanent resident of the United States

Adopt-a-Poll groups are also needed. The county says they're great fundraisers for service clubs, church groups, and non-profit organizations. Essentially, groups have their members fill the poll worker slots in a precinct. An organization can earn anywhere between $448 to $525 for working on election day and going to worker training sessions.

The Clerk-Recorder's office is also looking for temporary election assistants to help the election division with daily activities in the office leading up to election day and also through the certification of the election.

If you live in Santa Barbara County, they're looking for poll workers there too.
