Rochester Hills City Clerk’s Office hiring Election Inspectors

According to a press release from Mayor Bryan K. Barnett”s office, the Rochester Hills City Clerk”s Office is looking for people to continue the time-honored tradition of working the polls on Election Day. By serving as an Election Inspector, residents can serve their community and earn extra income at the same time.

Inspectors will be stationed at one of 32 precincts throughout the city and will be responsible for the precinct and voter activities on Election Day. Election Inspectors are paid for working on Election Day and also receive additional payment for attending mandatory training prior to Election Day.

“The City Clerk”s Office cannot staff 32 precincts on Election Day; we need Election Inspectors to make our elections run smoothly,” said Tina Barton, Rochester Hills City Clerk. “They truly are the backbone of our democracy and we are very fortunate to have a wonderful group of inspectors.”

They frequently maintain friendships outside of the polling place and look forward to seeing their neighbors every Election Day.
