Got my training on Thursday. Apparently I have to be trained to use a tablet. This is going to be fun...

I did my training. Putting the tablet on a stand and turning it on took 20 minutes.

They put out biscuits though so not all bad :)

As far as I know everything went OK (but then I was dealing with this in the backend / ICT side of things)

Our election didn't finish until around 6am lol

Time to give this thread a little bump. I received an email today from my local Council to enquire if I'm interested in working on next year's local Council elections on May 2nd. Now that's what I call forward planning!

I know that having dodged a bullet last year, my local authority will be taking part in the voter iD trial this year. Which on one hand will be a pain, but on the other hand, we'll be getting paid a bit more for.

No mention of the impending General Election/People's vote though...lol!

Crikey that is VERY forward planning for local government!

My local council have also asked for my availability. Too busy now to take a day off to Poll Clerk but I've signed up for counting.

When does this start happening? I can't seem to find any adverts online and is it county council or Borough councils that will be advertising?

Thanks!

Think I'll give this a go this year, though there's currently nothing online about jobs in North Tyneside - any ideas when/where I should look?
