Working on election day could mean pocketing up to $680, for some of the 1,500 people that the City of Vancouver is looking to hire.

Right now there are a ton of City of Vancouver job openings, specifically for election day gigs.

It's the perfect way to make some extra money in Vancouver this fall, and there are a variety of roles available. None of the jobs require a degree or extensive qualifications — making the application process that much easier.

The city is on the hunt for people to work on advance voting days — between October 1 and 13 — and on election day, which is on Saturday, October 15.

If you're free on those days, it's worth applying for one of the many job openings. Plus, you'll be helping people vote — which is pretty exciting.

The election employment opportunities page on the City of Vancouver website said that in order to qualify to be an election official you have to be 16 years old or older, legally entitled to work in B.C., and be able to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

You will also be required to wear a mask while on the job and attend training sessions.

Here are the job positions open right now, for election officials in Vancouver.
