Updates from Supervisor Cortese

Submitted By Office of Supervisor Dave Cortese

Want a front-row seat to the June 5 primary election? The Registrar of Voters needs thousands of volunteers to be Election Officers on Election Day, at voting places throughout Santa Clara County.

There are opportunities to be an Inspector or a Clerk. The Inspector supervises the Precinct Board, is responsible for election supplies, setting up the polling place, and ensures that closing procedures are followed and ballots and election supplies are returned to the receiving center. The Clerk can perform any or all of the Election Officer duties and assist the Inspector. Inspectors will receive stipends of $170 to $200, and clerks will receive $115 to $145.

All Election Officers must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter (U.S. Citizen) or a legal permanent resident of the U.S. The Registrar is also seeking volunteers who are bilingual in Hindi, Khmer, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog or Vietnamese.

Election Officers are required to attend a scheduled training class or take an online training course. Click here for more information and to apply online. You may also call the Registrar of Voters Office at (408) 299-7655.

Thank you in advance for serving your community and being part of the greatest exercise of democracy.


And, if you haven?t registered to vote, your registration form must be postmarked or submitted electronically no later than May 21 for you to vote in the June 5 election. An online registration form is easy to fill out and is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese.

If you would rather fill out a paper voter registration application, you can pick one up at the County Registrar of Voters Office, 1555 Berger Drive, San Jose; libraries, Department of Motor Vehicles offices and the U.S. Post Offices. To have a paper registration application mailed to you, call (800) 345-8683.

After you are registered, you can also choose to vote by mail. The California Secretary of State?s website will tell you all about registering to vote and voting by mail, along with other helpful information.
