Deputy Returning Officer (DRO) in Simcoe County, ON
on 13 October 2021
A Great Experience!
Working as a Deputy Returning Officer (DRO) was nice to work with the public. It was slow at some times and fast-paced other times. When it was slow I would use that time to keep in pace with paper work and keeping my poll station tidy. There was always something to do - it is a job where you stay busy. Everyone was a lot of fun to work with. Pay is good, anything over 8 hours in one day is overtime. Takes a while to get paid, still waiting from election. Can take up to 2 months to receive your pay by direct deposit when I called and asked. It is a good side job that's just a lot of fun and when your pay shows up - it's a surprise! I had no problems at my poll. I hope to return in the future!
