Be paid to help people register to vote in Leeds

Leeds, Leeds Star

Paid work is available helping to ensure people are registered to vote in Leeds.

It involves calling at homes where householders have not replied to requests to confirm their electoral registration details.  It is mainly evening and weekend work but you must be available on certain dates, including attending a training session this Saturday, October 7.

Electoral Services are looking for individuals to work as Electoral Registration Visiting Officers (ERVO’s) on behalf of the Electoral Registration Officer (ERO). The ERO must visit households and individuals where no response has been received to Household Enquiry Forms and Invitation to Register Forms. ERVO’s will carry out these visits to encourage individuals to respond, and to obtain responses from households.

This is mainly evening and weekend work and can be carried out alongside your normal job.

In order to carry out this role you must be able to:
  • Attend training on Saturday 7 October
  • Collect your forms and equipment from Leeds Town Hall on Friday 13 October between 8am and 5pm
  • Carry out visits between Friday 13 October and Monday 20 November
  • Return your forms and equipment to Leeds Town Hall by 5pm on Monday 20 November
