...but more like on a (very) temporary full-time basis, the City is look for people to work on election Day October 25th to help administer the whole darn thing. I worked as a Deputy Returns Officer during the 2003 Provincial Election and I have to say it was a lot of fun. Of course, I'm a crazy politico and I find that sort of thing fun, but still, it's not bad for a full day's work and couple of hours training. Here's the info:
