City calls for civic election workers

Election officials are needed to assist with the 2011 Municipal Election set for Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011.

Those wishing to work the election can apply online at or pick up an application form at the Office of the City Clerk at City Hall.

“We need officials to assist at each polling station,” said city clerk Stephen Fleming.

“Workers will help with voter registration and handing out ballots, overseeing the voting station and with the vote tally at the end of the night.”

Workers are needed for advance polls on Nov. 9, 16, 17, 18 and on Election Day.

The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., though election staff will start as early as 7 a.m. and finish as late as 9 p.m. on voting days.

Training is provided for all positions. Remuneration ranges from $260 to $450 depending on the position.

The city hopes to fill positions by the end of June.

Election information can found online at or by contacting the Office of the City Clerk at City Hall, 1435 Water St., or by phoning 250-469-8645.
