Are you looking for an opportunity to serve your community? Why not consider working as an election inspector? City and township clerks are always seeking Election Day assistance.
Election inspectors are paid to assist voters at the polls on Election Day. Some of their responsibilities include checking voters’ registration records and recording that they voted, distributing ballots, assisting voters, and maintaining order within the voting precinct.
An election inspector must be a registered voter in the State. An inspector cannot be a challenger, a candidate for nomination or election to any office on the ballot, or a member of a candidate’s immediate family. Immediate family is defined as the individual’s father, mother, brother, sister, spouse, or any relative residing in the same household with that person. In addition, anyone convicted of a felony or an election crime may not be an inspector.
Please contact the Livingston County Clerk’s Office, at (517) 546-8177, or your city or township clerk’s office to request an election inspector application and/or to seek additional information. It’s a very rewarding experience, and training is provided prior to Election Day.
Note: Election inspectors under the age of 18 must comply with child labor laws. The pertinent portions of these laws were excerpted from the Michigan Department of Education website and are shown below (click on Read More). A more complete discussion of child labor laws can be found here.
