Poll Clerk

alt tag

Poll Clerks work during advance voting days and Election Day to record the vote totals using a computer and barcode scanner. The Poll Clerk is generally the first election official electors encounter when going through the voting process. In addition to recording the votes, Poll Clerks are also responsible for checking for acceptable identification, administering declarations, keeping track of all poll records and directing electors to the DRO to be issued a ballot. 

The Poll Clerk's priority is to help, document and guide an elector through the check-in process to ensure a smooth-running poll.

Basic computer skills would be beneficial, but not necessary as all training will be provided. If you are interested in working during a provincial election as a Poll Clerk, please contact your local Returning Officer.
