REGISTRAR-RECORDER/COUNTY CLERK AT THE FAIR
Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean Logan announced this week that RR/CC staff is on hand at the Los Angeles County Fair providing information and services to the public. Come visit the Department and get important information about services and the upcoming November 2, 2010 General Election. On Sunday, September 12, the RR/CC will feature a second booth along the parade route in the Expo area, as part of the Sixth Annual Los Angeles County Day at the Fair. RR/CC staff will be on hand conducting voter education, voter registration and poll worker recruitment activities.
Location & Hours
The main booth, located in the rear of Agricultural Building No. 4, will be open Wednesday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., now thru October 3. Booth activities include voter registration, voter education, information about the upcoming November 2, 2010 General Election, and recruitment of paid poll workers. The RR/CC booth will also provide recorder and vital records information, including applications to request copies of birth, death, and marriage records.
County Day at the Fair
The Sixth Annual Los Angeles County Day at the Fair is Sunday, September 12th. Elected officials and department heads will join County employees in celebrating this special day. This is an opportunity which allows each of the County Departments to showcase its services and the great team of employees who deliver those services. Activities will include a parade at noon featuring County vehicles and employees, an Expo area from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with informational booths staffed by departments, and a horse race in honor of the County. RR/CC Chief Deputy, Debbie Martin, will ride on the Department Head float. The RR/CC float which is presently under construction has been designed to reflect the County Day theme “Excellence in Service” and the services the Department provides to the residents of Los Angeles County.
Important Election Information
The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming November 2nd General Election is October 18th. Logan urged eligible citizens to be sure and confirm their voter registration. RR/CC staff will be available to assist eligible citizens with voter registration and to update registrations for those who have moved, changed their names or wish to change their political party affiliations. Vote by Mail ballot applications for the November 2 Election will also be available at the booth.
The RR/CC is actively recruiting poll workers for the November 2nd General Election. Ask RR/CC staff at the booths for more information about serving as a paid poll worker in the upcoming election. “Serving as a poll worker is an excellent opportunity for citizens to take part in democracy and give back to their community—and it pays,” said Logan.
Poll workers receive an $80 stipend for Election Day and an additional $25 bonus for attending a 1½ hour pre-election training session. The RR/CC is especially interested in bilingual poll
workers who can speak Armenian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog/Filipino or Vietnamese.
