County Seeks Bilingual Volunteers to Work Polls During Presidential Election

August 31, 2016

The Montgomery County Board of Elections is seeking bilingual voters to work at early voting centers and at polling places on Election Day.

   Because of the diversity within the County, the Montgomery County Board of Elections recruits workers who speak numerous languages. Voters who are fluent in both English and Spanish are especially needed in each polling place to meet Federal requirements of Section 203 of the 1975 Voting Rights Act which stipulates that bilingual Spanish speakers be available at the polls.  Spanish speaking election judges are needed for both Early Voting, October 27 - November 3, and Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

  The Election Law of Maryland requires that election judges are registered to vote in the State of Maryland, 17 years of age or older, and a U.S. citizen. Bilingual judges must also be able to speak, read, and write English. All election judges will be compensated for training and for Early Voting or Election Day service.

    If you are interested in taking this leadership position in your community, please contact the Montgomery County Board of Elections at 240-777-8532, download an election judge questionnaire from our website at www.777vote.org, or e-mail Dr. Gilberto Zelaya at gilberto.zelaya@montgomerycountymd.gov.

   For more election information, call 240-777-VOTE, visit www.777vote.org, the Maryland State Board of Elections’ website at http://elections.state.md.us, or follow the Montgomery County Board of Elections on Facebook or Twitter.
