How can I become an election worker?
There are applications for election workers available at the township office. You may stop by and pick up an application or call and one can be mailed to you. On the application, you must stipulate your party affiliation. This is a legal requirement.
Election workers are required to attend certification training to work in the polls. There is a county election training meeting which will certify the worker for a two-year period. In Spring Arbor Township, the Clerk holds a training session prior to each election. Election workers are paid $10.00 for their attendance at the training meetings.
On the day of the election, workers must arrive at the polls at 6:15 a.m. to set up the precincts and voting equipment in preparation for the opening of the polls at 7:00 a.m. It is not unusual to have voters standing in line before 7:00 a.m. waiting to vote. After the polls close at 8:00 p.m., the election workers tear down the voting equipment and pack up all of the supplies which must be returned to the Township office that evening. Election workers are paid an hourly rate of $9.00. It is a long day working an election, but many workers enjoy seeing the people in the community and saying hello to their neighbors. There is also a certain amount of pride in being part of working an election. If you are interested and have the time available, please request an application via e-mail or contact the Township office by phone.
