The California Secretary of State has begun an email notification program to voters who submit a voter registrations and have provided an email address. The notification is to confirm the voter’s activity and to help protect their voter registration in the event their registration may have been changed by accident or without their consent. Email alerts will be sent by the California Secretary of State if a voter registers, or their registration is changed, updated or cancelled.

The alerts will offer a voterinstructions on what to do if the information in the alert is incorrect. If a voter wishes to receive these alerts, they will need to provide their email address during the registration process. The email notification program will be rolled out in phases over the next several months, based on the source of the registration. Beginning immediately, voters will receive notification if their voter registration status has been changed to cancelled or if they register or update their information via the California Online Voter Registration (COVR) atregistertovote.ca.gov. Notifications based on registrations completed by paper or through the DMV will begin in January.

For more information about this exciting new program, visit the Election and Voter Information website at  sos.ca.gov/elections.

Need for Poll Workers for Presidential Primary Election  

The Sonoma County Registrar of Voters is seeking  poll workers for the March 3, 2020, Presidential Primary Election.  “This is a valuable opportunity to serve your community, and to observe, promote and participate in the democratic process”, says  County Clerk Deva Marie Proto. Over 300 Poll Workers are still needed, including bilingual and English-only volunteers. 

To aid in the effort to recruit Poll Workers, the   Sonoma County Board of Supervisors  has approved an increase in the daily stipend for Poll Workers. The stipend paid to Inspectors will be $175, and the stipend for Clerks will be $125. Bilingual Poll Workers will receive an additional premium of $25. “We hope this increase in the stipend and the addition of a bilingual premium will encourage more people to volunteer to serve their community by working at the polls on Election Day,” said Clerk Proto. 

Poll Workers must be citizens who are registered to vote in California, legal permanent residents, or high school students aged 16 years or older with a minimum GPA of 2.5 and permission from both their parent(s) and school principal. Experience is not necessary,  and training will be provided. Bilingual Poll Workers must be fluent in English and one of the following languages: Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese or Khmer.
