On Sept. 25, the Riverside County Registrar of Voters began mailing about 876,000 sample ballots and information pamphlets. Voters will have these in advance of the general election on Nov. 4.
If voters do not receive an informational guide in the mail, it is available at www.voteinfo.net. Voters also may call the registrar’s office at (951) 486-7200 or 1-800-773-8683 to request a mailed copy.
Voters may mark their choices on the sample ballot and use it as a guide to help them complete their official ballot at the polls.
Voter polling place locations are printed on the back cover of the information pamphlet, which includes an application to request a vote-by-mail ballot. A Spanish-language version of the pamphlet also is available at www.voteinfo.net and a copy can be mailed upon request.
For questions about your eligibility to vote, contact the registrar’s office at (951) 486-7200. To check your registration, visit www.voteinfo.net/AmIRegistered/ or call the registrar’s office.

Election day help
The county is recruiting poll workers to be assigned to voting locations for the Nov. 4 consolidated general election. No experience is required and training will be provided by the Registrar of Voters office. Poll workers may earn up to $125 as precinct inspectors or $90 as precinct officers.
Poll workers must attend a special two-and-a-half hour training class to familiarize themselves with election procedures and prepare to assist voters when the polls open at 7 a.m. on election day. Workers in both posts also receive $20 for attending the training class.
The registrar also seeks individuals who speak proficiently in English and at least one of the following languages: Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog or Vietnamese.
Anyone who wishes to participate as a poll worker may call the Registrar of Voters office at (951) 486-7341 or 1-877-663-9906.
