July 10, 2020 – The Midland City Clerk’s Office is seeking civic-minded individuals who want to serve their community this election season by working as an election inspector on an upcoming Election Day.

Election inspectors are critical to ensuring a smooth voting experience for Midland voters and an accurate and secure vote count in each election. Inspectors greet voters at their precinct on Election Day, walk voters through the process of the application to vote, verify voters’ identities, and distribute ballots.

To qualify as an election inspector, applicants must:

  • Be at least 16 years old;
  • Be a registered voter in the State of Michigan (if 18 years old or older);
  • Not be a candidate, a member of a candidate’s immediate family, or a challenger;
  • Be able to work at least 15 hours on Election Day (from 6 a.m. to after 8 p.m.);
  • Be able to sustain long periods of sitting and standing throughout the day;
  • Deal with the public in a courteous, patient, and efficient manner; and
  • Have experience using a computer. Computer skills are preferred, but not required.

All election inspectors will be required to attend a short training class prior to the August 4 election. Election workers receive about $150 in Election Day pay, $10-20 per training session, and included breakfast and dinner on the Election Day they work. Election inspectors are not required to be residents of the City of Midland to apply.

To apply as an election inspector, please complete the form located at and return it to the Midland City Clerk’s Office via fax at 989-835-2717; via email at; or by dropping it off in person via the secure drop box inside the main doors of City Hall, 333 W. Ellsworth Street, Midland, MI 48640.   For questions or more information, please contact the Midland City Clerk’s Office at 989-837-3310.
