Election Officer Application

Elections Alberta is recruiting election officers to conduct the Fort McMurray-Lac La Biche By-Election

If you are interested in working at the Advance Polls or on Election Day, you are encouraged to apply via this website, as all applications will be forwarded to the returning officer for hiring consideration.

To work as an election officer, you must not be a:

  • Member of the Parliament of Canada
  • Member of the Legislative Assembly
  • Councillor under the Municipal Government Act
  • Trustee of a board of trustees under the School Act
  • Candidate
  • Official agent
  • Judge of federal or provincial courts
  • Person who has, within the immediately preceding 10 years, been convicted of an indictable offence where the penalty that may be imposed for that offense is greater than 2 years' imprisonment

Legislation has now changed and all residents of Alberta (including permanent residents and temporary residents with a work permit) are eligible to work as an election officer.
