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.

If you would like to work at the election and you have not worked at an election before, please fill in this form.

The Elections Team will get in touch to tell you where you will be working.

Further questions

The best way to volunteer to work at future election is by filling in the expression of interest form. The team will then contact you.
