The City of Lethbridge is now accepting applications for election workers for the municipal and school trustee elections on Monday, Oct. 16, 2017.
An election requires many dedicated people to ensure voters can successfully cast their ballots on Election Day. The City of Lethbridge provides residents with opportunities to assist in the democratic process and requires 300 election workers for the 2017 Election.
Election workers must be available to work on Election Day from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of Lethbridge. Preference will be given to applicants with prior experience working an election.
In addition, all election workers will be required to attend a mandatory two-hour training session. Sessions will be scheduled between Sept. 25 and Oct. 5, 2017.
Applications can be submitted online at www.lethbridge.ca/careers and will be accepted until Friday, Sept. 1, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.
Residents will elect the positions of Mayor, Councillors (8), Public School Board Trustees (7) and Separate School Board Trustees (5) – all to serve a four-year term in office.
