Working at elections

Have you thought about working at an election?
Did you know the AEC employs around 80,000 Australians to deliver a federal election?

The majority of work is on election day only. However, there is a wide range of casual roles and opportunities to work throughout an election period, typically around eight weeks, including roles in early voting centres, mobile polling and after election day.

Why work at elections?

Elections are a fundamental part of our democratic process in Australia.

Every person working at a federal election makes a valuable contribution to Australia’s democracy.

At the AEC we are focused on delivering trusted, reliable, high quality and high integrity federal elections and other electoral events. Working at elections offers:

  • competitive pay rates
  • on the job training and support
  • a unique work experience
  • an opportunity to engage with the community, make new friends and expand your networks.

Register your interest

The AEC maintains a national register of people who may be offered temporary work during elections, including federal elections, by-elections, plebiscites and referendums.

If you wish to be considered for temporary election work, please submit an online Registration of Interest (ROI).

People from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

In the lead up to an electoral event, the AEC will assess your application and may contact you, if suitable opportunities become available in your preferred locations. Please note, the AEC cannot guarantee employment.

SOUTH FREMANTLE BY-ELECTION?

Posted in city of fremantle, democracy, elections, Uncategorized by freoview on October 27, 2017

 

Will the people of South Fremantle have to endure a by-election and will Andrew Sullivan’s win be contested?

According to the Fremantle Herald today unsuccessful candidate Marija Vujicic is contemplating a protest because of the supposed in-illegibility of candidate Ben Moodie.

Andrew Sullivan won the South Ward seat with just 57 vote more than Liam Carter, and Vujicic was 138 behind Sullivan, while Moodie received 268 votes.

Moodie’s eligibility had been a major discussion on social media during the election campaign, but he Electoral Commission had allowed his nomination, so one has to question why there are no better check ups to see if candidates are eligible.

In an hour we will know the outcome of the High Court decision about Federal politicians with dual citizenships, so there needs to be an inquest into the Electoral Commission and how it is they do not properly check if candidates can legally become politicians in Australia.

A  by-election in South Fremantle would be pretty unfair to the candidates as it demands more door knocking and printing material, and it is likely that many voters would not bother to send in new ballot papers.

CONFUSING LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION BALLOT FORMS

Posted in elections, fremantle, local government by freoview on October 2, 2015

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus and public servants must be from way way somewhere else, because I just don’t know how some of them think and operate.

Look at the ballot papers for the Local Government election sent out by the Electoral Commission and one has to wonder if anyone in that department applied common sense. Most likely not because the voters are very confused about a part of the envelope where they are required to write their details etc. This is only required though, the EC writes, when one has moved house, BUT!! one only receives the ballot papers when one is registered on the electoral roll with one’s current address, so why was the appendix about personal details and address added at all?

So let’s make it clear: YOU ONLY HAVE TO SIGN AND DATE THE SLIP ON THE ENVELOPE WHERE YOU PUT YOUR BALLOT PAPER IN. YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILL OUT THE PART THAT REQUIRES YOU TO FILL IN YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS!! 

Please Vote!!!!!

LOCAL COUNCIL VOTING CONFUSION

Posted in city of fremantle, election, local government by freoview on September 30, 2015

For those of you who have not yet voted for the Fremantle Local Government Election or who are confused about what you need to do here a message from the Electoral Commission.

An elector need only sign the Elector’s Certificate on the front in the box marked “Signature” for their vote to be counted. The information on the back of the certificate need only be completed when an elector wishes to update or correct their enrolment details.

Voting for our representatives is not only our democratic right but also our duty, for which many people in the world envy us, so please take part and VOTE!
