Poll workers wanted for October


The municipality is on the hunt for election workers.

Officials said they need about 350 people to fill poll positions in this year’s municipal election.

Workers are required in a variety of positions for the advance poll days (Oct. 13-15), as well as election day, Oct. 24.

“Elections are about public participation and having members of the community handle poll duties is an important part of that,” said Andrea Tsinias, election co-ordinator, in a media release. “It’s an excellent chance to take part in our democratic process and get paid for your time.”

All election workers will also receive paid training.

Those who are interested in working the election need to complete the online election employment application form found on the municipal www.ckelection.com.

Hard copies will also be available at the municipal offices in Chatham, Blenheim, Dresden, Ridgetown, Dresden and Tilbury.

Job descriptions and rates of pay for the positions are available on the website under the Election Employment section.

Applications will be accepted until July 27.

Inquiries may be directed to 519-360-1998 or ckelection@chatham-kent.ca
