Are you free on Saturday March 23 this year to work at the NSW State election?
The NSW Electoral Commission is urgently seeking people to work as election officials on election day.
- Provide great customer service and keep accurate records
- Ensure electors are correctly marked off the authorised roll and issued with the appropriate ballot papers
- Help sort and count ballot papers and decommission the voting centre at the end of the day.
NSW Electoral Commissioner John Schmidt said election officials are particularly needed across several regions and he encouraged people to take up the opportunity to participate in the democratic process.
“Successful applicants will be provided with all necessary training. We don’t require people to have any prior experience of working at an election but they must be enrolled to vote,” he said.
There are nearly 40 out of 93 electoral districts across the state where more applications for election official positions are needed.
These districts cover the following geographical regions:
- Regional NSW
- Western suburbs, Eastern suburbs, the Inner West, North Shore and Northern Beaches.
- Hawkesbury, South Coast, Broken Hill, Bourke, Cobar, Narrabri, Walgett, Gilgandra
- Bega, Dubbo and Central Coast
- Sydney Metro
Election officials start at 7.15am and work until the ballot paper count is completed that evening.
