A typical working day would include introduction to the team and any newcomers, setting up anything that needs to be set up, supervising, counting, and taking down.

I was only with this organisation for the 2018 General Election in November, where I worked from 7am to 11pm with constant rotating duties.
The hours were long, and there were many busy periods, but there was also lots of peer support and a generous break with food provided.

I developed my sense of communication to people of all ages, how to push through long periods of work, and how to problem solve.

I enjoyed the job and would consider applying again.

While my coworkers were lovely, I found this role stressful due to the intense workload - it felt as though we were understaffed due to the massive number of early voters which was unprecedented.

Showing the districts community how to vote, where to place the votes and assisting first time voters. Working with a hard working team, assisting them when needed, such as showing them what to do with the new system of electronic mark offs or when disruptive partisans cause disturbances, assisting fellow team members to deflate and calm the situation.
Pros
30 minute breaks across the day
Cons
12 hours to 10 hours to 8 hours

Loved working here! Lots of pressure, deadlines and great accuracy a must! Very rewarding and satisfying work, all-be-it too short a term. Management led by example and were very caring and appreciative of all staff regardless of their position!

I would highly recommend working for the VEC if you are not afraid of hard work, are a quick learner, and are willing to slot into any role to get the job done! - A very fast and furious, hands on job - just loved it!
Pros
Excellent Management
Cons
Long and Unpredictable hours
