Recommendations from political parties

The political parties represented in the National Assembly are required to make recommendations to the returning officers regarding people available to work during elections. They have until September 14 to provide a list of names to the returning officer in every electoral division with a view to filling positions related to the polling process and counting of the votes. If the positions cannot be filled on the basis of the recommendations alone, we will contact people who have applied.

Working conditions

Salaries range from $15.43 to $20.43 an hour. All mandatory training hours are paid.
