WITH the State Election on Saturday, March 28, the NSW Electoral Commission is looking for people to work as Election Officials.
"This is a great opportunity for people looking for casual work to help in the administration of one of the State's most important events" New South Wales Electoral Commissioner Colin Barry said.
"We are looking for people to work at one of the 2,800 polling places throughout the state on election day and also to help issue pre-poll votes at early voting centres from Monday, 16 March."
On election day Election Officials issue ballot papers to electors and count the ballot papers after the close of voting.
"This is a unique opportunity to work behind the scenes of an election and to be paid for it."
Election Officials can earn more than $300 by working on election day.
Other rates will depend on the type of work and number of hours on duty."
