Workers wanted for CK municipal election

Chatham-Kent residents looking to make a little extra money this fall are being invited to apply for employment opportunities during the upcoming municipal election.

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent is looking for approximately 350 workers to fill poll positions in this year's election.

Workers are needed in a variety of positions for the advance poll days, which are on October 13, 14 and 15. Workers are also needed for election day which is on October 24.

“Elections are about public participation and having members of the community handle poll duties is an important part of that,” said Chatham-Kent Election Coordinator Andrea Tsinias. “It’s an excellent chance to take part in our democratic process and get paid for your time.”

According to Tsinias, all election workers will also receive paid training.

Those who are interested in working the election need to complete the online Election Employment Application which can be found by clicking here.

Hard copies will also be available at the municipal offices in Chatham, Blenheim, Dresden, Ridgetown, Dresden and Tilbury.

Job descriptions and rates of pay for the positions are available on the website under the Election Employment section.

Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, July 27, 2022. Inquiries may be directed to 519-360-1998 or
