Do you know new election inspectors are selected every year?  If you have a desire to be part of the election process with other residents of your community, look no further.  Applications are available here.

We are always in need of election inspectors.  These are paid positions.  Fore questions regarding quailifications, traning, or general information about being an inspector please contact the Clerk's Office at 248-698-3300 Ext. 7.

The Clerk's office depends on many resources to properly conduct every election.  During a normal election we will employ over 80 volunteers to staff our voting precincts.  Usually we will appoint precinct chairs, co-chairs and up to four workers for each precinct.  We have both Republicans and Democrats on each team.  Polls are always open from 7 AM to 8 PM on election day.  The Clerk's Office begins their day at 5:30 AM and will stay until all precincts have reported their results at the end of the night.  Precinct chairpersons are supplied with cell phones to remain in immediate communication with all precincts during the day should they encounter any problems. 

We would like to thank our local school districts and churches for the use of their facilities on election day and also our setup and take down crew for their prompt and courteous services as well as their help trouble shooting the day of election.  I would again like to thank my entire staff and our other departmental employees who assist us the night of the elections.
