Elections Ontario offers a competitive rewards program and career growth opportunities in a diverse, challenging and exciting environment. Our recruitment process reflects our mission to uphold the integrity and accessibility of the electoral process and to manage elections in an efficient, fair, and impartial manner.

We are committed to fostering a positive, safe and supportive work environment that is inclusive, healthy, accessible, and is free from discrimination, harassment and workplace violence.

Together we lead change by building modern services that put the needs of electors first.

We are recruiting election officials at voting locations. All positions are paid and training is provided. 

Election officials working at the technology-based polls will be using electronic poll books and vote tabulators. Applicants will need to be comfortable using technology. 

Election officials working at the non-technology-based polls will be using paper based products.

We are seeking candidates who:

  • are able to communicate in English and French for electoral districts designated as bilingual;
  • are able to work long shifts (14+ hours on election day); and

Previous election experience is considered an asset. Please note that positions (both tech and non-tech) and voting locations are assigned by the Returning Officer, and that travel may be required for training. 

The returning office will be contacting applicants in early May. More information about the position and pay will be provided at that time. 

Please note that election officials and revising agents who work in long-term care facilities or hospital settings must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as per Government of Ontario requirements.
