Have you ever thought of getting involved with elections by working at a polling station on election day or at the count following the election? This year we have district and parish elections scheduled for Thursday 4 May 2023.
A new requirement is that residents must show ID to vote, so your support at polling stations will be invaluable to guide voters through the process.

- Count assistant
You must be at least 18 years of age to work as polling station staff or as a counting assistant. You will need to provide one of the following:
