The County of San Diego Registrar of Voters (ROV), Logistics and Warehouse Operations has the following temporary job opportunities for the Mail Ballot Drop-Off Ballot Collection Team:

MBDO monitors and drivers work together in teams of two, following all state and county health orders for social distancing, daily temperature checks and use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

The MBDO program was established in 2014 as a convenient alternative to returning voted mail ballots via USPS mail. Ballots are dropped off at a secure location and voters enjoy an in-person experience like voting at a poll. The program eases congestion and lines at the polls on Election Day and ensures the timely return of mail ballots, saving time and taxpayer dollars.

Drivers will start on or around October 2 to delivery supplies and may work past the election to return rental vehicles. Drivers may be scheduled to work any and/or all days between October 6 and Election Day, November 3.  Drivers should expect to work overtime on evenings and weekends and shifts vary by route assignment.
