Your organization or business agrees to adopt one of Milwaukee's 195 voting sites by providing a number of individuals (depending on the site selected) to staff a voting site as Election Inspectors during an election. Election Inspectors issue ballots to voters, register new voters and act as greeters.
The goal is to present a positive voting experience for Milwaukeeans. Help Milwaukee Vote is a non-partisan activity, meaning that participation does not benefit any political party or candidate.
The polling locations open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m.. Workers are expected to work from 6:00 a.m. until approximately 9:00 p.m. or when the work is completed.
The Election Commission will work with you to choose a site to adopt.
Election Inspectors must be eligible to vote and never been convicted of a felony. Necessary skills include reading and writing English as well as an ability to process information and work well with the public.
Election Inspectors receive a two-hour training which may be scheduled at a workplace.
Groups are asked to adopt their selected site for the following scheduled elections:
- Spring Primary - Tuesday, February 15
- Spring Election - Tuesday, April 5
- Fall Primary - Tuesday, August 9
- General Election - Tuesday, November 8
The number of people varies. Based on the voting site adopted, staffing can range from six to twelve people. Your commitment can be based on your staffing capacity.
The Election Commission will recognize all voting site sponsors through a number of opportunities, including website recognition, signage at the voting site, and press release mentions.
