Elections Saskatchewan is still needing help and looking for workers.
It takes 10,000 people to get each electoral office ready, voter lists up to date and the like.
Many areas across the province are short of workers including Athabasca, Cumberland and Meadow Lake in the north, and Moosomin and Cannington in the southeast. There’s a number of rural areas that Elections Saskatchewan say could use some assistance.
Chief electoral officer Michael Boda admits it is a very busy time for everyone involved.
“They are working to administer the election, during the advanced voting period and then on election day. They’re in addition to absentee voting.”
As long as you are over 18 and have lived in the province for six months prior to the election, you can work the election. You can even have your wage directed to a charity of your choice. There are even positions for those who are not Canadian citizens.
Boda is also reminding voters that you must now have ID with you when you go to vote.
“You do still need to bring your identification with you on election, because ID is now required in our province.”
