Bilingual Voters Needed to Work Early Voting Sites, Plus Election Day

Because of the diversity of the County, the Montgomery County Board of Elections (BOE recruits workers who speak dozens of languages for every election. Bilingual voters are needed both for Early Voting sites -- every day from June 12 to June 19 – and on Election Day, Tuesday, June 24.

The County places election judges who are fluent in Spanish at every polling place, in accordance with the requirements of Section 203 of the 1975 Voting Rights Act. So, BOE has a special need for voters with Spanish speaking fluency.
