The City of Milwaukee Election Commission is looking for hardworking citizens that have a dedication to democracy to work the polls. 

As an election inspect, you will play a vital role at voting sites. You'll work directly with voters and assist them in any of the following capacities:

  • Check-in registered voters and provide the voters with a ballot and voter number.
  • Register qualified individuals to vote who are new voters or have an address or name change.
  • Handle the voting machine to verify ballots are accepted and give out "I Voted" stickers.

Election Inspectors are paid $230 (hazard pay increase for 2020 Fall Elections) for a full-day shift and are required to attend one paid training class ($21.75) or retraining ($15.00). To receive training class payment, you are required to work on Election Day. Lunch and dinner breaks are allowed for full-day shift workers. A full-day shift is 6:00 a.m. to close of the voting site.

For more information please call the Election Commission at 414-286-3491 or fill out an application on the commission's website.
