Fairfax County is “urgently” looking for people to help out at the polls for the primary on June 23.
While the county is strongly encouraging voters to absentee vote by mail for this election, election officers are still needed — especially bilingual people in Falls Church who speak Korean or Vietnamese, the county says. Bilingual speakers are also needed in Annandale and Centreville.
The county has taken to social media to find at least 200 election officers for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives primary.
More from the county on measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus at the polls:
To protect election officers and voters, the Office of Elections will take precautions that include:
- Providing face coverings, gloves and hand sanitizer for every election officer.
- Limiting the number of voters in the room at the same time.
- Requiring voters to maintain a social distance of six feet from each other and election officers.
Election officers help to set up voting equipment, check photo IDs, provide assistance to voters and tabulate results.
People who are registered to vote in Virginia can sign up online by next Friday, May 15, and can choose to volunteer their time or earn at least $175.
