If you have ever wondered how to become more active in government, there are plenty of opportunities for you that do not involve running for elected office. Precinct inspectors are people who assist voters at the polls on Election Day. Registered voters interested in serving as election inspectors must submit an election inspector application to the Clerk's office. In addition to their name, address and date of birth, applicants must include their political party preference and qualifications to fill the position such as education or experience.
A precinct inspector must be a registered voter of the State. They cannot be a challenger, candidate, member of a candidate's immediate family, or a member of the local Board of Canvassers. Anyone convicted of a felony or an election crime may not serve. They must also attend training to receive certification and to prepare for an election.
Why not consider helping your community and becoming more politically active by becoming a precinct inspector? Submit the Election Inspector Application to the City Clerk's office if you are interested or contact our office to learn more.
