Work at elections

We employ members of the public to help during election time. We are always looking to encourage new people to come along, join in and enjoy the chance to be part of local democracy and earn a little money.

Typical roles during an election in the Somerset West and Taunton area are:

  • presiding officers
  • poll clerks
  • counting assistants
  • registration canvasser (September to December each year)

If you are interested in applying for any of these positions please complete the general enquiries online form or call 0300 304 8000.
