Cook County still is searching for poll workers for the Nov. 6 election, with towns most in need including Streamwood, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates and Elk Grove Village.

Cook County Clerk David Orr said there is a special need for workers who are bilingual to serve Spanish-speaking, Chinese, Korean and Southeast Asian voters. Applicants must complete the required training, set up the voting equipment the night of Nov. 5 and serve from 5 a.m. until the results are transmitted and the equipment has been packed on election night.

Election judges earn $200 and equipment managers earn $340. People can apply at, or call (312) 603-0965.
