Poll workers needed for municipal election
Ninety workers are still needed to help at polls during the October 22nd municipal election.
Election coordinator Lucas Chambers said the positions available include site manager, deputy returning officer, revision clerk, mobile and tabulator deputy returning officers and greeter.
“We provide full training for each position,” Chambers said. “It’s a great chance to take part in the election process and get paid for your time as well.”
Those hired will receive from $175 to $300 in total (depending on the position) for training and Election Day. A number of persons will also be offered work during advance poll days on October 11th, 12th and 13th and will be paid for those days at the same rate.
Eligible individuals hired also receive mileage to the polls and those who work will be reimbursed mileage for their training sessions which will be held at the Park Avenue Business Centre in Chatham.
“We will have training over a 10-day period in September,” Chambers said. “Training will consist of two hours sessions and we will schedule sessions for mornings, afternoons and evenings. We will confirm training dates in the next few weeks.”
There will be two dozen polls across Chatham-Kent and poll workers are needed in each community. A total of 300 workers and standby workers are being sought. Polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
All those who are interested in working the election should complete the Election Employment Application found on the municipal website on the Election Employment Information page. Hard copies will also be available at local Municipal Offices and information desk locations. Job descriptions of the positions available are also listed at www.ckelection.com
Applications will be accepted until Friday, July 27th.
