We are currently accepting applications for work at the forthcoming Bye-Election from people aged 18 years and over. The election is expected to be held in late November and to be eligible to work at the election you must not be actively canvassing for any candidate nor for either side in any referendum which may be held on the same day.
Applications must be made through this website by clicking the "Work Application" option on the menu at the left hand side of this page. The election office is not staffed between elections so we have no facility to accept applications by phone or post. For the same reason we cannot respond to queries concerning any application.
