EOI to work at the NSW Local Government Elections in September 2016

28 Jun 16

The New South Wales Electoral Commission (NSWEC) acknowledges that the state of New South Wales is one of the most culturally, linguistically and religiously diverse states in Australia and we are committed to meeting the needs of all NSW electors in relevant, accessible and inclusive ways as well as exploring opportunities to expand voting options for electors with disability.
The capacity of the agency is enhanced by employing people with linguistic and cultural expertise and we endeavour to identify expressions of interest for electoral work from people with bilingual skills and place these workers in appropriate polling places to assist culturally and linguistically diverse electors.
We are encouraging the NSW community to put in an EOI to work at the upcoming NSW Local Government Council Election September 2016  (this is after the Federal Election in July 2016).
 
The NSWEC recognises the diversity within the New South Wales community and the demand for high quality electoral services to meet a wide range of needs, expectations and levels of understanding of the democratic system.
We consider diversity an asset: all institutions of New South Wales should recognise the diversity in the population of New South Wales as a valuable resource and promote this resource to maximise the development of the State.
The NSWEC's role is to provide high quality election services that are impartial, effective, efficient and in accordance with the law.
