Scrutineers carry out an important role in ensuring integrity in the conduct of elections and referendums.
The Scrutineers Handbook is designed to help scrutineers undertake their role effectively. It outlines the rights and responsibilities of scrutineers and includes information on what to do before, during and after polling day.
It is crucial that scrutineers have a clear understanding of their role. The handbook explains what you can and cannot do under the law.
Scrutineers play a significant part in helping to ensure every vote counts.
An addendum for the Scrutineers Handbook has been published to supplement the 2012 print version. Hard copies are available from divisional offices. The versions above incorporate the addendum items.
