About 50 employees are still needed in each of Elmwood-Transcona and Winnipeg Centre, Kenny said. She did not know how many are still needed in the sprawling northern riding of Churchill-Keewatinook Aski.

"We're looking for quite a bit," said Marie-France Kenny, Elections Canada regional media officer.

The scramble to find workers is not unusual, she said.

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 5/10/2015 (1381 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

With two weeks to go before the vote, Elections Canada is still looking for poll workers for federal ridings Elmwood-Transcona, Winnipeg Centre, and Churchill.

About 50 employees are still needed in each of Elmwood-Transcona and Winnipeg Centre, Kenny said. She did not know how many are still needed in the sprawling northern riding of Churchill-Keewatinook Aski.

"We're looking for quite a bit," said Marie-France Kenny, Elections Canada regional media officer.

The scramble to find workers is not unusual, she said.

"I had a conference call with colleagues across the country. Everyone's doing a big push."

People can make $210 for working up to 14 hours as clerks on election day, she said. If they work at an advance polling station, they can earn about $600 for four eight-hour days. Workers also earn $50 for attending a separate training session.

Applicants must be a Canadian citizen and at least 16 years old on election day. You must also agree to refrain from any partisan political activity during your employment.

More information is available at www.elections.ca, under "employment." People can also inquire in person at Elmwood-Transcona at Suite 6, 620 Kildare Avenue, or phone 1-866-288-1741; or Winnipeg Centre at Ste. 100, 1700 Ellice Ave., or phone 1866-294-6760.

The Churchill-Keewatinook Aski riding has several offices because of its size but people can phone the Thompson office at 1-866-288-1708 be directed to the right office.
