December 15, 2023 – The Midland City Clerk’s Office is seeking civic-minded individuals who want to serve their community by working as an election inspector this upcoming election season.
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. New voting changes have created many more opportunities to help with the election process, including Early Voting and Absentee Counting Board.
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 sustain long periods of sitting and standing throughout the day; and
- Interact with the public in a courteous, patient, and efficient manner.
All election inspectors will be required to attend a short training class in January. Election inspectors receive $15 per hour as well as breakfast and dinner on Election Day. Election inspectors are not required to be City of Midland residents to apply.
The first election of 2024, the Presidential Primary Election, will be held in Midland County on Tuesday, February 27.
