Jurisdictions in Washtenaw County are recruiting registered voters and youth age 16 to 18 to serve their community as poll workers. Poll workers are vital to the voting process and ensure the right to vote. They make voting possible!  

QUALIFICATIONS:  A poll worker must be a registered voter of the State. They cannot be a challenger, candidate, member of a candidate's immediate family, or a member of the local Board of Canvassers. Anyone convicted of a felony or an election crime may not serve. 

Registered voters interested in serving as poll workers may submit an application request online to a city or township clerk or their choice.  

Poll Worker Application (PDF) can also be filled out and submitted directly to the local city of township where you choose to apply.

You can find local clerk information via the Michigan Voter Information Center. The city or township clerk will be able to answer any questions you have regarding becoming and/or being a poll worker.
