Community Action Partnership of Riverside County is seeking applicants for a position on its commission that will serve as the “low-income” representative for District 3.
Those interested in the position must submit their application by 9 a.m. Monday, March 5. The low-income representative will be chosen by an election of voters in District 3 on Monday, March 12.
Voting will be held between 3 and 5 p.m. at the Idyllwild Library. Voters can come into the building and sign up to self-verify that they are a low-income resident (guidelines will be available) and they will be handed a ballot, according to Jose Arballo, senior public information specialist for the Riverside University Health System-Public Health.
Idyllwild residents may also vote at the Hemet Service Center (CAP satellite office), 749 N. State St., Hemet.
