Falkland residents are needed to assist in the democratic process.

Election officials are needed at polling stations in various locations throughout the Columbia Shuswap Regional District at the 2011 general election which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19.

“Election officials will be needed to assist at each polling station,” said chief election officer Carolyn Black.  “Election workers will set up polling stations before they open, help with voter registration, hand out ballots and count the ballots at the end of the night.”

Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day, though election staff will start as early as 7 a.m. and won’t be finished until after all the votes are counted which could be as late as 9 p.m. or later depending on voter turnout.

Training is provided for all positions. Remuneration ranges from $300 to $350 depending on the position.

Those wishing to work the election can apply to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District by email to cblack@csrd.bc.ca or by fax to 250-832-3375.
