Work at the Polls on Election Day
Join our team!
Mono County is seeking poll workers to serve in future elections in all our polling places. Additionally, since we are opening a new polling place that will serve the Chalfant/Benton voters for the June 7, 2016 Primary Election, we will need volunteers from those areas to help staff it. Poll workers provide an invaluable service to the community and have an opportunity to participate first-hand in the electoral process.
