Election Inspectors play a vital role at voting sites. They work directly with voters and assist them in any of the following capacities:
- Check-in registered voters and provide the voters with a ballot and voter number.
- Register qualified individuals to vote who are new voters or have an address or name change.
- Handle the voting machine to verify ballots are accepted and give out "I Voted" stickers.
The Election Commission is in need of additional bilingual (fluent in English/Spanish or English/Hmong speaking) poll workers.
Election Inspectors are paid $230 (hazard pay increase for 2020 Fall Elections) for a full-day shift and are required to attend one paid training class ($21.75) or retraining ($15.00). To receive training class payment, you are required to work on Election Day. Lunch and dinner breaks are allowed for full-day shift workers. A full-day shift is 6:00 a.m. to close of the voting site.
Chief Inspectors manage the voting site and ensure all operating procedures are followed. Chiefs are also responsible for completing Election Day documentation, reconciling voter numbers and ballots, and resolving voter concerns.
