I have had an invitation from Ipsos Mori to help with an exit poll so there may be other jobs as well.

It seems to be about £9.00 an hour - more in Manchester and London. There are various shifts available but you need to be close to a seat where they are doing a poll. I used to do mystery shopping for a company that was taken over by Ipsos so I am on their system.

Where do you go to apply for this opportunity with MORI?

Have you done it in the past? I went canvassing at the last election and a few people absolutely refused to tell me how they were going to vote! Like they were afraid I was sent by the secret police and I was going to drag them off to a concentration camp if they did not 'think' right!

Yes, I think that it's about £30. It lasted about 75 mins, but was very dull!
Just got to focus on the Haribo and Biscuits at this point in the game lol

Best of luck for everyone on Thursday!

Did anyone get work in polling? I looked on our local council website and on Indeed's website, but nothing came up. Does it go through agencies?

To the best of my knowledge the work is always via your local council a month or two before the election takes place

I've had a letter through from a Council I sometimes work for offering me elections work for this May. They are quick off the mark!

They are on 7th May this year (the day before the VE day Bank Holiday). In my area it will be local Council elections and Police and Crime Commissioner elections, but in some areas in might be P & CC elections only (or Parish elections). Check your local Council website to see what elections it is holding this year, and contact their elections team if you're interested (though they'll probably say that they haven't started recruiting yet!)
