Survey of Poll Workers (December 2020)

Elections Canada is reaching out to people who worked as poll workers at the last general election to ask them about their interest in working at the next one.

This survey will assess:

  • Whether former poll workers are interested in working at the next election and in what capacity
    • If you answer yes, we will share this information with the local Elections Canada office in the electoral district where you worked so that you can be contacted for potential work during the next general election or by-election.
  • General concerns about COVID-19
    • Your answers will be kept confidential, made anonymous and used only for research purposes.

Who is conducting this survey?

This survey is being conducted by Elections Canada's Research Division on behalf of the Elections Officers Recruitment and Evaluation team.

How is this survey administered?

Participants will receive an email from rop-por@elections.ca with a link to a short online questionnaire.

Who can complete the survey?

Poll workers who worked at the last election and who agreed to share their email address with Elections Canada.

If a person did not receive an invitation to the questionnaire but is interested in working at the next election, they are encouraged to apply on the Elections Canada website: Apply to work as a poll worker – Elections Canada
