Supporting elections

Local elections are usually held annually to give residents the opportunity to choose the individuals they want to represent them and their wishes in their local area.

Running an election is a huge undertaking and as a result, each year there are opportunities for local people to support. These are paid roles and provide a great opportunity to gain experience and skills. In return you help to contribute to local democracy.

Roles include assisting with the annual canvass to ensure everyone entitled to vote is able to do so, and subsequently distributing polling cards, as well as staffing the polling stations on election day with roles as a Poll Clerk or (if you have previous experience in this respect) as a Presiding Officer.
