A massive recruitment drive is underway to support delivery of the 2024 NSW Local Government elections in September this year.

Matthew Philips Acting Commissioner said there are thousands of opportunities for people across NSW to earn some extra money on election day – Saturday, 14 September. 

“We are recruiting right across NSW and no experience is needed, you just need to be enrolled to vote and available to work on election day.”  

“We will train you. You’ll join a huge team working on one of the biggest events to be held in this state. It’s a great day’s work in your local community and we have a lot of staff who return again and again.” 

We don’t yet have a date for the Northern Tablelands by-election, so recruitment has not begun for that event yet, but the NSWEC has advised that those who sign up for the local government elections will also be contacted about the by-election.

Election staff perform a range of tasks on election day, including:  

  • providing information and assistance to voters
  • managing the smooth running of polling places
  • sorting and counting ballot papers. 

“Even if you have no experience working at elections, this is a great opportunity to learn new skills and meet people, while you also play a valuable part in contributing to democracy,” Mr Phillips said.
