For immediate release

Contribute to Victorian democracy this November by working as an election casual or official.

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is looking for casual staff for the 2022 Victorian State election.

‘Working at the election is a fantastic way to contribute to democracy in Victoria,’ Deputy Electoral Commissioner, Dana Fleming, said.

Election casuals receive competitive pay and don’t need any prior experience, with full training provided.

Voting centres and early voting centres will be located across the state and people are encouraged to apply for election work anywhere in Victoria.

‘As long as you are over 18 and an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a current work visa, you could work with us for one day or up to 4 weeks in a variety of roles,’ Ms Fleming said.

The VEC welcomes all applications and is committed to having its election workforce reflect the diversity of the Victorian community. People are particularly encouraged to apply if they:

  • speak multiple languages including English
  • are from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities
  • have a disability
  • don’t have secure housing
  • are aged between 18 and 30.

Election staff develop skills in administration, customer service, and teamwork and enjoy a unique working experience.
