Please be advised that there will be NO December, 2015 meeting of the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee. Our next meeting will be on January 13, 2016 at 7:00PM.
our December meeting former Humboldt County Registrar/Recorder and Clerk Carolyn Crnich spoke of the pioneering Election Transparency Project created pro bono by volunteers and facilitated by the Elections Department. This project uses open source software and scanned images of all ballots cast in the recent election to enable any member of the public to scan the actual ballots and validate the counts. The website for the project can be found at www.humtp.com.

Student Poll Worker Program
California Elections Code section 12302 allows eligible students to be appointed as poll workers on Election Day.
As poll workers, students learn first hand the importance of participating in the electoral process. In addition, they provide much needed support at polling place locations.
In order to eligible to be appointed as a poll worker, a student must be:
A United States citizen;
At least 16 years of age at the time of the election in which he or she will be serving;
A high school student with a grade point average of at least 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale);
A student in good standing, attending a public or private secondary educational institution.
In addition to gaining experience in the electoral process, students can also earn stipends.
