We are recruiting election officials at voting locations for the Lambton—Kent—Middlesex and the Milton by-elections. All positions are paid and training is provided.

  • 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.
