Spanish Speaking Election Workers Needed

The US Department of Justice is now requiring all Texas counties hire additional Spanish speaking election workers for the November general election.

For Lubbock, this means 269 additional workers. Lubbock County has always used Spanish speaking workers, but now the number of bilingual workers must be based on the number of Spanish surnames within the voting precinct.

Elections Administrator Dorothy Kennedy was informed of the mandate Thursday and says it will cost the county an estimated $27,000.

If you speak Spanish and would like to be a paid election worker, call the Lubbock County Elections Office at 775-1339.
