  • March 8, 2016 is the Presidential Primary.  We need individuals to help at the polls as Election Inspectors.  We would like to have 6 individuals at each polling location to ensure a smooth and efficient election, and we need you!  Election Inspectors are responsible for making sure that voters are processed in a fair, efficient manner in accordance with Election Law.  Election Inspectors are required to work a full 16 hour day on Election Day, and attend training prior to working at the polls.  Elections Inspectors are paid for their time.  Contact the Clerk’s Office for details: 734-449-2880 ext. 14.
