Poll workers are still needed

Westland City Clerk Richard LeBlanc is currently accepting applications for poll workers for the upcoming elections in the city.

To serve at the poll, applicants must be a registered voter in the State of Michigan, have moderate computer skills, be able to work well with others, and be able to read and follow directions. All election workers are expected to operate the election computers and voting equipment during the course of the day, LeBlanc said.

Training dates will vary and will be scheduled before regularly scheduled elections. All election inspectors must be trained before being scheduled to work.

Applications are available at city hall or online for election inspectors. Candidates will be notified of training dates after the completed forms are returned to the office of the city clerk. Access the City of Westland website and search for Election Inspector Application (PDF) and W-9 (PDF).
