Where do I get one of those election jobs

Dear editor,

Wonder how things work during a federal election?

The returning officer, who is appointed by the chief electoral officer, hires an average of 500 people during an election.

Two groups of personnel report to the returning officer: office staff and election officers.

Have you ever seen a advertisement in any paper for positions during a election?

In most areas the same faces behind the desks keep showing up at the voting centres.

Could it be an old boys' school?
