Workers needed in Sydney Metro and across the state for the NSW State election 

Are you free on Saturday 23 March this year to work at the NSW State election?

Would you like to earn nearly $400 to help deliver democracy?

Member for Lane Cove, Anthony Roberts, says “the NSW Electoral Commission is urgently seeking people to work as election officials on polling day.”

“The task isn’t taxing,” said Mr Roberts.

Election officials:

• 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.

Mr Roberts said he would “encourage people to take up the opportunity to participate in the democratic process.”

“Successful applicants will be provided with all necessary training,” he said.

“The NSW Electoral Commission don’t require people to have any prior experience of working at an election but they must be enrolled to vote.” 

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: 

Sydney Metro Western suburbs, Eastern suburbs, the Inner West, North Shore and Northern Beaches.

Regional  Hawkesbury, South Coast, Broken Hill, Bourke, Cobar, Narrabri, Walgett, Gilgandra Bega, Dubbo and Central Coast.

“Election officials start at 7.15am and work until the ballot paper count is completed that evening.”

“I’d say it could be a day well spent,” concluded Mr Roberts.
