Election Day Jobs on offer

With the upcoming Federal Election, local residents are being encouraged to sign up for a job on election day.

Australian Electoral Commission spokesperson, Evan Ekin-Smyth said more people are needed to ensure the election runs smoothly.

"The Federal election doesn't implement itself, and we don't have enough permanent staff to get the job done," he said.

Mr Ekin-Smyth said there is no experience required to sign up as a polling official.
