 Election Inspector Information Sheet
(printer friendly version of this page)
The City of Northville is always accepting applications for Election Inspectors!

Necessary Qualifications and Completing Your Application

  • You must be a United States citizen and registered to vote in the State of Michigan.
  • Inspectors must be able to retain and utilize the information provided during training sessions, work under the direct supervision of the Precinct Chairperson, and be proficient with computers.
  • Complete and return your application to the City Clerk’s Office. There is a 24 hour drop box located in the City Hall vestibule.
  • Michigan Election Law requires that you indicate your political party affiliation as required on the Election Inspector Application. Michigan Election Law requires that an equal number of election inspectors from major political party, as closely as possible, be appointed to each precinct. If you declare “independent” or “no party affiliation” your application will be disqualified.
  • PA 158 of 1997 allows municipal officials to appoint 16 or 17 year olds as election inspectors, subject to certain restrictions. Any student interested in experiencing the election process should also complete an Election Inspector Application.

Training and Assignment Information

  • Training will be provided to Election Inspectors. Inspectors are paid $20 for attending training.
  • All Election Inspectors will be trained to use the Electronic Poll Book. The EPB is the computer used by the Inspectors to check in voters on Election Day.
  • Prior to each election, assignment notification will usually be made by email. If there is a cancellation (including up to the day of the election), you might be contacted and asked to replace a canceled inspector.
  • Inspectors are assigned based on the type of election and the number of inspectors needed to administer the election. New inspectors might experience a wait of 1 year or more until an assignment is made.

Pay Rates and Hours

  • Pay rates: Chairperson $180/day
                     Inspector $145/day
     
  • Hours on Election Day are from 6:00 a.m. until approximately 9:00 p.m. or so. Inspectors are released by the Chairperson. The Chairperson will release the Board of Election Inspectors once all processing and clean up is completed.
     
  • Lunch and dinner breaks are assigned by the Chairperson based on the needs of the precinct on Election Day.
