Federal monitors were out Tuesday at polling stations watching for how well Alameda County is serving non-English speaking voters during the presidential primary election. But the polls are not the only place cities and counties are required to provide interpretation help, which is why Alameda County supervisors on Tuesday renewed a $100,000 contract with Interpreters Unlimited. Federal and state laws require on-site interpreters for people who do not speak English well enough to communicate their needs.
