Wrexham Council looking for poll clerks ahead of General Election for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

Wrexham Council is looking for poll clerks to work at the upcoming General Election.

On July 4 thousands of voters across the county borough will head to their local polling station to cast their vote for the new Members of Parliament for Wrexham and Montgomeryshire and Glyndwr.

Polling stations are set up on the day in the heart of a local area in venues such community centres, village halls, schools, playgroups or leisure centres.

To help staff these facilities Wrexham Council is looking for poll clerks to work at the General Election on July 4.

Poll clerks staff the venues throughout the day and are there to greet and assist residents who are casting their votes in person.

Jobs can include helping to set up the venue, handing out ballot papers, mark the electoral register and maintain the secrecy of the ballot.

This election will also require voters to bring with them relevant photo ID which will need to be checked by poll clerks.

The role is also paid for the 16 hours of work – with clerks expected to remain in the premises until the vote closes.

During the election period Wrexham Council employs 300 people to help the process run in a smooth and transparent way.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “We are looking for people who can give a high level of customer service at our polling stations and greet the last elector with the same enthusiasm as the first.

“If that sounds like you, email [email protected] for an application form.”
