This area includes Woodstock, Tillsonburg and Tavistock.
Réjean Grenier, the regional media adviser for Elections Canada in Ontario told Global News roughly 25-40 more people are needed, but some will be hired as stand-bys.
Interested candidates must be at least 16 years of age, do not need to be a Canadian citizen, and can live outside of the Oxford electoral district.
However, Grenier says those living outside the district who have not yet voted cannot vote on election day in Oxford if they’re helping out — they would need to vote in their own ridings.
Residents of Oxford who are hired to help, will be allowed to vote.
A mandatory 1-hour training session is taking place Sunday Oct. 20.
Interested candidates can apply on Elections Canada’s website by telephone at 1-866-275-1842.
Grenier says the deadline to apply is “as soon as possible.”
Further details regarding signing-up and training can be found through their website or by calling the phone number.
The federal election is Monday Oct. 21.
