Alameda County Is Willing to Pay for Political Enthusiasm



    Your Highway 1 Bucket List
    Poll workers are necessary because not everyone votes by permanent absentee.

    Looking for a way to make some extra cash? Have some left over political enthusiasm from President Barack Obama's election or does the Tea Party have you all amped up?

    Then Alameda County is looking for you and it is willing to pay for your troubles as well.

    With the November elections just a few weeks ago, Alameda County is still in need of a few good men and women to work the polls on election day.

    The county needs to hire 4,500 people to do everything from working as attendants to precinct inspectors. Each job requires a little training but it's not as complicated as some of the ballot measures you will need to vote on.

    There is money involved as well and for some it's not too bad. The jobs range in pay from $95 to $180 a day. For more information visit the Alameda County Registrar of Voters website.
