Election Worker Jobs


Elections are run by people in our community,
people just like you. What kinds of jobs could I do? There are many different jobs during
an election, such as: the Information Officer, who greets voters, asks if they have their
voter information cards and identification, and directs them to their polling division.
The Deputy Returning Officer, who is responsible for the ballot box, checks voters’ identification
and gives each eligible voter a ballot. The Poll Clerk checks voters off of the registered
voters list, and enters them in the poll book. After the voter casts her or his vote, the
Deputy Returning Officer checks that the ballot is initialed and overseas placing the ballot
into the box. For various reasons, some eligible voters are not registered to vote on voting
day. The on site Registration Officer registers these voters. Other positions during an election
include Enumerators, who register voters at their residence before voting day. Security
Officers, who ensure voters stay within the polling location and do not enter other areas
of the building. Messengers, who pick up and deliver items between voting places. And Supervisory
Deputy Returning Officers, who make sure everything runs smoothly in some larger voting places.
