Choosing election workers from the electorate at random seems like an
interesting idea, similar to jury-service I guess (but better compensated).
It also seems like a good way to engage people with the process.

I think David G. said that workers are chosen randomly in Belgium also.
I don't know how it is done in Ireland (or anywhere else for that matter).
