Tellers on polling stations

What are tellers? Experienced Teller: Andy Duncan

  • Tellers are volunteers who keep a record of the polling numbers of electors who have voted as they enter/leave a polling station. Tellers ask electors politely for this information.
  • This information is noted on teller pads. A teller pad is simply a piece of paper with a space to note the polling station, name of the teller, time of day and the polling numbers of those who have voted.
  • Gathering polling numbers is useful as we can use these to remove electors from our sheets who have already voted. This is easiest to do using the Polling Day Application, however it is also possible to do using WARP sheets, as we will see later on.
