City of Nanaimo looking for election day workers for fall election

Local government elections to be held Oct. 15

Positions such as mayor, city councillor and school trustee won’t be determined until election night, but election workers, on the other hand, are welcome to apply now.

The City of Nanaimo issued a press release advising that it is seeking experienced election workers to fill “a variety of positions” in advance of the local government elections Oct. 15.

“Working for the election is a rewarding experience. I encourage anyone interested in helping facilitate a key component of the democratic process to apply,” said Sheila Gurrie, the city’s director of legislative services and chief election officer, in the release.

Those interested in learning more information or applying can download an application form at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/elections and drop it off at city hall or submit it via e-mail to elections@nanaimo.ca by June 29.
