With Election Day just around the corner, Fairfax County is looking to hire a few more bilingual election workers. In particular they have a need for people who speak Vietnamese.

The multicultural county has election workers who, in addition to speaking English, also speak Spanish, Korean, Urdu, Mandarin, Arabic and Vietnamese, said Cameron Quinn, chief elections officer for the county.

In all, the county will hire approximately 2,200 election workers, who will make $175 for the day. They'll arrive before 6 a.m. and leave after 7 p.m. 

If you can help, call 703-324-4735. Training is Saturday morning.

After 40 + years , at least 2 generations later, they still don't speak English? Sounds like the Vietnamese just arrived here. They run businesses here, they pay taxes here, they have educated their children here, so why do they not speak English now?
