Applying instructions 

There are two ways to apply for casual employees to work before, on and after Polling Day 2017.

You may apply to either or both sites however bear in mind that you can only be available to work one role on polling day. If you are selected to work at a Polling Place or the Count Centre on polling day you may still be offered another role on other days.

Working at a polling place 

The Commission employs casual staff to work in polling places across Western Australia on polling day and on Mobile Polling Place teams during the two week period prior to polling day.

At these locations you are employed by Integrity Staffing (external link) as a temporary employee.
