Working at an election | Sandwell Council

MySandwell, our phone lines and payments will be unavailable on Saturday 11 February and Sunday 12 February.

Normal service will resume at 8am on Monday 13 February. Essential maintenance means we will be unable to process MySandwell requests or payments online or by phone during this time.

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.
