Invite to earn extra cash working on election day

EARN some extra cash, learn new skills and meet people, all while you play a valuable part in contributing to democracy.

A state-wide recruitment drive is underway to support delivery of the Local Government elections in September this year.
Acting NSW Electoral Commissioner Matthew Philips said there were thousands of opportunities for people to earn some extra money on election day – Saturday, September 14.
“No experience is needed, you just need to be enrolled to vote and available to work on election day,” Mr Philips said.
“We will train you. You’ll join a huge team working on one of the biggest events to be held in this State.
“It’s a great day’s work in your local community and we have a lot of staff who return again and again.”
Election staff perform a range of tasks on election day, including providing information and assistance to voters, managing the smooth running of polling places and sorting and counting ballot papers.
Mr Philips said the Electoral Commission was committed to creating a workforce that reflected the population of NSW.
If you speak a language in addition to English, if you are a person with disability or if you are a First Nations person, Mr Philips strongly encourages you to apply
“Even if you have no experience working at elections, this is a great opportunity to learn new skills and meet people, while you also play a valuable part in contributing to democracy,” he said.
