Start the conversation

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is calling for members of the community to contribute to democracy this November by working as an election casual or official for the 2022 State election.

Deputy Electoral Commissioner, Dana Fleming said election casuals received competitive pay and didn’t need any prior experience, with full training provided.

“Working at the election is a fantastic way to contribute to democracy in Victoria,” Ms Fleming said.

“Election staff develop skills in administration, customer service, and teamwork and enjoy a unique working experience,” she said.

“As long as you are over 18 and an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a current work visa, you could work with us for one day or up to four weeks in a variety of roles.”

Ms Fleming said voting centres and early voting centres would be located across the State and encouraged people to apply for election work anywhere in Victoria.

She said the VEC was welcoming applications and was committed to having its election workforce reflect the diversity of the Victorian community.

The Deputy Commissioner particularly encouraged people to apply if they spoke multiple languages including English, were from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities, lived with a disability, didn’t have secure housing, and/or were aged between 18 and 30.
