Working at an election

When there are local, general and other elections, the council needs staff to work at polling stations, at the count and also opening postal votes.

You will be paid for your work. 

If you have worked for the elections team on election day before, we already have your details. You do not need to apply again – the elections team will contact you to tell you where you will be working.

If you would like to work at the election and you have not worked at an election before, please check back on this website closer to the next election for how to apply.
