Calaveras Elections Department In Need Of Additional Poll Workers

With the November Election one month away, the Calaveras County Elections Department needs additional poll workers in Rail Road Flat, West Point, Valley Springs and Jenny Lind. The county pays $100 for an inspector, $85 for a clerk and $85 for student poll workers. Training is an additional $5, though you must work at the polls to receive payment. The job can entail some long hours, especially for inspectors. Pools open at 7 A.M. and close at 8 P.M. that means workers could be needed from 6 A.M. to 10 P.M., if not later. In Calaveras County, former District 3 Supervisor Merita Callaway is looking to reclaim her seat against incumbent Michael Oliveira, while Benjamin Stopper is looking to unseat incumbent District 5 Supervisor Clyde Clapp. Calaveras County Sheriff Rick Dibasilio will seek to keep the job he was appointed to after the death of former sheriff Gary Kuntz in 2015 against Gary Lee Stevens, an investigator for the Amador County District Attorney’s Office. There will also be a five-person race for two seats on the Angels Camp City Council, as well as a multitude of school and special district races. In Calaveras County, about 79 percent of eligible voters have registered 60 days before the election compared to about 75 percent in 2014.
