Get involved in the elections behind the scenes

14 December, 2014

Earn some quick cash by working on the polling booths as an election officer or as an office assistant on the day of the election.

It can also involve some work before and after the election as well as training.

The NSW Electoral Commission conducts elections for State and Local Government elections that involve almost 5 million people voting at 2,700 polling booths.

The Electoral Commission also handles the NSW Aboriginal Land Council elections every 4 years, with the next election in October 2015.

If you are interested in working at the State election, or at local government or the NSWALC election you must be an enrolled elector – check out, it only takes a few minutes.

Once you complete this very simple online expression of interest process you will go onto the list of people that the Electoral Commission will contact when opportunities arise for employment and training for elections.
