Victorian Electoral Commission

The VEC is seeking local people to help run the 2024 local council elections. This is a message from the VEC.

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is seeking organised hands-on leaders in specific regional areas for key roles at the October 2024 local council elections.

Applications are now open to join our pool of senior election officials (SEOs), who take on specialised election management roles during election events. As an SEO you will play a major role in the delivery of elections across Victoria. Our pool of staff will be appointed as election managers and assistant election managers for each local council area at the October 2024 local council elections. Each local council area will have one election manager and up to 3 assistant election managers appointed. If appointed, you will work in election offices, overseeing many election activities which will vary depending on the type of election.

To help us with the challenge of recruiting for several vacancies in rural areas, we are reaching out to you as part of the VFBV network to help share this opportunity.

VFBV members have what it takes to be senior election officials: you are civic-minded, hands-on, calm under pressure and have valuable local knowledge!

Our SEOs come from all walks of life: Victorians who are retired or transitioning into retirement; professionals, freelancers or small business owners with the flexibility to take extended leave; parents returning to work and more.
Prior electoral work experience is not essential and full training is provided.

If you live in or near any of the following areas, they want to hear from you!
