Well coordinated work team and able to meet and greet citizens around the town for the election site you are a part of. However, the work is very repetitive and requires attention to detail to correctly match elector information.
Lots of interaction
If you are going to work at the polls during the election, show up an hour or more early to make sure that everything is set up correctly. Plan to stay an extra 2 hours or so for closing procedures, especially if they change them again. Don't be afraid to ask for help; people are usually very nice about helping newbies. If you work once, you can usually count on being hired back. Getting paid can take a while though.

I was a poll clerk and on election day there would be a rush from time to time but it was a good day overall. The only challenging part is if you mess up. One tiny detail could set you up to stay for longer hours if you didnt account for a ballot.
Decent pay, good breaks
Long hours of sitting, just be careful to not mess up
Had to work 1.5 hours past when they closed the gym to new voters just to finish taking the remaining voters' ballots. Then had to work with an inept supervisor which led to an extra 2 hours of bumbling around until we closed our station. worked 17 hours instead of the regular 14. They also refused to give us a lunch break because our polling station was so busy so I didn't eat until I went home. If you do apply as a DRO or poll clerk, make sure you request being paired with someone who has already worked an election.
Not physically demanding
I had two different experiences. In the first it became evident they did not know what they were doing. In the second, it was excellent & well run,
I enjoyed being able to help make the voting go smoothly knowing the process was being run correctly. Being a part of a diligent, collaborative team of dedicated people was very satisfying. I was proud to do my part in this patriotic effort!
was a pleasure when done right
better preparation and adherence to protocol
Great place to work, Everyone worked together to solve problems, and created a happy/healthy work environment. Loved the Management as they took time to answer any questions or concerns from both customers and staff. Really went above and beyond.
Fun to work with people from all different backgrounds, even just for a short period of time like one election day.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time working for Elections Canada although it was only on election day and therefore not a lot of time spent getting to know one another, I felt truly included and accepted by my peers and fellow employees.
Very good compensation
Can be boring in slow times throughout the day.
Worked 3 different positions during 2019 election + recount days, had a great team each time who all did their absolute best even when there were complicated problems to resolve. The work varies in pace a lot, there will be slower times and busier times as people come to the polling station, but 90% of it is fairly straight-forward tasks and the training provides a guidebook for it all. Can be lots of paperwork to handle and keep track of, must be able to deal with that and have decent memory. Hours are long but pay is very worthwhile. My only serious complaint is that payment can take some time (around 8wks) and this time around they were extremely delayed (12+ weeks, had to call and "open a case" with them). Otherwise fun and challenging temp job!
Great pay, paid training, relatively easy work once trained
Long hours, hard to organize breaks around busy times, occasionally stressful people/environment
Working for Elections Canada on election day is something everyone should do at least once in their life! The training manual has everything you need to know explained perfectly, read it cover to cover before election day. Being bilingual is an asset... Indicate this in your application and they will try to get you as a Deputy Returning Officer or a Central Poll Supervisor instead of an Information Officer or something.
Good pay for a single day, lots of resources provided, interesting work
A very long day... Make sure to fill up on coffee
Working with Elections Canada was a good experience. It was a way to participate and do your part for the community. In my perspective, it not only have gave you good hours and a some money in your pocket, but it was an onsite learning experience too. You learned a little bit about the area you live in, and also about how to deal with problematic situations. In this job you are trusted to keep information private. The responsibility is quite large in this job, but it is worth it.
Physically easy work, and good hours
