Young Adult Poll Workers - SIGNED INTO LAW

Bill Text: AB 554

Date Introduced: February 23, 2015

Sponsors: Asm. Mullin (D), 4 co-sponsors

Status: Signed into law

This bill addresses the need for more bilingual poll workers by allowing counties to employ 16 to 18 year old students who are legal, permanent residents. The bill fills a gap in existing law, which already allows high school students who are citizens, and legal permanent residents over age 18, to serve as poll workers.
