Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is offering Central Coast residents the chance to earn money from the upcoming federal election. The AEC is urging people to register their interest in being a polling official for the upcoming federal election. State Manager for NSW, Warwick Austin said that around 1200 polling officials will be required for the Central Coast region. "There's a variety of positions on offer with pay for the election day ranging from $400 to $1,000," Mr Austin said. The majority of polling officials will work on election day only and rotate between tasks of polling place setup, voter mark-off, queue control, ballot box guard and counting. "Being behind the scenes of [the election] process as a polling official is fascinating and a really rewarding role."
