Registrar of Voters Logo
California state law allows any high school student that is at least 16 years of age, in good standing with at least a 2.5 GPA and is a U.S. citizen
or a legal permanent resident of the U.S. to serve as an Election Officer. The Student Election Officer Program (SEOP) is a great way to introduce young
people to democracy in action and at the same time provide a valuable community service. Students bring new energy, enthusiasm and an aptitude for picking
up complex election procedures because they are in learning mode.
For the 2021 Recall Election, students will serve as an Election Officer at a Voter Service Center. Students may begin their shift by
helping to carry and set up election supplies followed by greeting, directing and assisting voters with the voting process throughout the day.
All interested students must obtain an application from their school SEOP coordinator, determine their availability and return the completed application to
their teachers for transmittal to the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters (ROV) by the due date.
Please be aware that hours are long, and students are to remain at their assigned Polling Place for a complete shift. Shifts may end early based on voter
traffic at the end of the day. All students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from their assigned location. Due to the often-high number
of applications, the Registrar of Voters cannot guarantee a work assignment for all interested students. Selected students receive a Notice of Appointment in the mail
stating their Polling Place and training class assignment.
Students receive a stipend of $130 for working Election Day. Students receive an additional $35 for attending
the mandatory training class.
The Registrar of Voters office will be implementing the most current CDC guidelines.
