Published: 25 February 2021

Would you or someone you know be able to help with this year’s elections to the West Sussex County Council and for the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner on Thursday 6th May 2021?

Payments for election work are made subject to income tax, but there are no national insurance contributions. Pay rates this year for a duty period of 16.5 hours are as follows: Poll Clerks: £170, Polling Station Stewards: £187 and Presiding Officers: £266.50. Training will be provided.

MSDC must stage covid secure elections in just 9 weeks’ time. They need more staff than usual to make the polls safe for everyone. You will be given suitable PPE to do this type of work, and it must be worn by everyone involved. Please see their public information on how they plan to make voting safe: Link to Mid Sussex District Council
