Volunteer as a Poll Worker for Sunday’s Election

Your Neighborhood Council needs you! Are you 18 and over, want to learn the mechanics of democracy first-hand, and have some time to spare on Sunday, May 1st? We’re looking for a few good volunteers to assist at our polling place between 11am and 5pm (or part of that time if that’s all you are available).

It’s a chance to meet your neighbors, get involved with local government, and see democracy in action (really…see how every vote matters).

If you are Korean-English or Spanish-English bilingual, we particularly need your skills.

To volunteer, email election@greaterwilshire.org or follow this link to the City Clerk web site (they run the election): https://lacity.quickbase.com/db/bkd38qzpz?a=nwr&nexturl=%2Fdb%2Fbkd38qzn9%3Fa%3Dshowpage%26pageid%3D101
