The call is out for bilingual speakers for the upcoming election in Fairfax County, Virginia. The county is in need of people who can speak both English and Spanish to serve as election officers for the election on November 8th.

Several areas are in dire need of workers, especially Annandale, Herndon and Springfield. Qualifications include being a registered voter in Virginia, the ability to work the entire day, and not being an employee of an elected official.

Contact the county for more information at 703-222-0776 or on their website.
