Los Angeles County needs to find a few thousand new poll workers to help conduct the primary election on June 3. Warning: It's a long day with modest pay.

A poll worker's day starts at 6 a.m., setting up a polling place that might — or might not — be in your neighborhood. Poll workers stay til 9 p.m., an hour after the polls close. They work with a polling place supervisor to make sure all the ballots are accounted for.

The county is looking to hire 2,500 more poll workers, including hundreds of bilingual people who speak Korean, Chinese, Tagalog and other languages.

The pay for that long day's work?  Up to $175. The county provides training.
