The department is seeking more than 2,500 workers to handle duties for the Nov. 6 election. The workers will operate polling places on Election Day and help voters navigate the voting process.

A training course must be completed prior to the election, and workers will be paid between $125 and $170 for the one-day assignment.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and be U.S. citizens who are registered to vote in California.
