Electoral Commission Queensland

Working at an election

The Commission has a duty to be election ready at all times. The next Queensland State General Election can be called anytime between now and early 2018. As part of our preparation, the Commission is looking for people to register their expression of interest in working at the next State election. 

What are we looking for?

  • represent the diversity of the Queensland community
  • act with integrity, impartiality and transparency in accordance with all relevant legislation
  • promote confidence in electoral processes and procedures
  • have demonstrated ability to complete tasks accurately within strict time constraints and
  • have existing confidence and knowledge operating multiple technological devices (applicants must be able to capably use a mobile phone, laptop, printer and, tablet)
