Election Inspectors

The City of Northville is always looking for pleasant, dependable people to work on Election Day.  There are two different positions for working on Election Day:

  • Poll Worker - Workers are assigned to one of the two precincts in the City of Northville, working the polls from 6am to approximately 9:30pm. 
  • Absent Voter Counting Board - The AVCB is comprised of election workers that process and tabulate all of the absentee ballots.  Once processing begins, AVCB workers are sequestered in City Hall until the last ballot has been processed.  After all ballots are processed, AVCB workers must close out the AVCB, secure ballots, complete paperwork, and deliver all to the Clerk's office.  This is typically done by 9pm. 


Election Inspectors must be a US Citizen and registered to vote in the State of Michigan.  They must be able to retain and utilize the information provided during training sessions, work under the direct supervision of the precinct chairperson, and be proficient with computers.
