Working on local elections

Hundreds of people from across the county support the running of the county, district and borough elections carrying out a variety of roles including presiding officers, poll clerks and vote counters.


This year due to the coronavirus pandemic there's a need to increase the number of people who could work on election day (Thursday 6 May 2021) and vote counting day (Friday 7 May 2021), including creating a reserve list.

It's essential that there's enough support, including a reserve list, in case people have to isolate or have symptoms of coronavirus and can no longer work on those days.

All the roles are paid and if your application is successful you'll receive training.

District and borough election staff are working hard to ensure polling stations and counts are COVID-secure and people working and voting can feel protected and safe.

To apply for an election role, contact your local district or borough council to find out more, or:

Derby City Council, are also holding city elections. View Derby City Council's election job vacancies.
