What is an Election Inspector?

 

An Election Inspector, i.e. poll worker, is a hired, paid, and trained individual who assists with running the local election in compliance with Michigan Election Law.

 

Election inspectors greet and check-in voters, verify voter identity, issue ballots, and assists with  ballot tabulation.  Individuals may also be asked to assist with processing absentee ballots.

What are the Qualifications and Requirements to be an Election Inspector?

 

  • You must be at least 16 years of age. (Any 16–17-year-old is only permitted to work a half day)

  • You must be a registered voter in Michigan, if  you are 18 years old or older.  Individuals aged 16-17 must be a Michigan resident.

  • You must not have a felony or election crime conviction.

  • You must not be an election challenger, a candidate, a member of a candidate’s immediate family, or a member of the local board of canvassers.

  • You must affiliate with a political party.  Party registration is not a requirement.  Michigan law requires that election inspectors disclose political affiliation to ensure balanced staffing.  Affiliating as “independent” or “unaffiliated” is not a legal option for election inspectors.

  • The ability to deal with the public in a courteous, patient, and efficient manner.

  • The ability to sustain long periods of sitting and standing throughout the day.

  • The ability to attend all required trainings.
