>>Voter Registration Officials 'Desperate' for Spanish Speakers
(Allentown, PA) -- Voting officials in Lehigh and Northampton counties say they're in desperate need of poll workers who can speak both Spanish and English. Lehigh County's deputy director of voter registration, Diane Gordian, says having an interpreter at the polls is key to ensuring second-language English speakers the ability to vote if they have questions or need support. Gordian says they need to get workers in place before the May 17th primary. Poll workers are paid 165-dollars per day, plus an additional ten-dollars for training.
