MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- We're two months away from Wisconsin's primary election and Milwaukee election officials are ramping up efforts to prepare for it.

The elections commission says it needs to hire hundreds of bilingual election workers now in order to train and staff polling places in August and in November for the general election. 

The commission says this is a great opportunity to witness democracy at work.

"If you want to know more about elections, if you hear a lot in the news about the security of elections, the transparency, well this is the opportunity for you to be a part of the election administration," said Jonatan Zuniga, deputy director of the Milwaukee Elections Commission.

The commission says Spanish and Hmong speakers are in high demand. 

Bilingual workers can earn up to $250 for working on Election Day.
