Election Inspectors Needed

Are you detail oriented, with enough stamina to work A 15 hour day?

Election Inspectors are a vital part of the election process.  The Township will employ approximately 50 Inspectors to run the August and November elections.  If you like to get up early, enjoy working with people, are comfortable using a laptop and are willing to attend a 3 hour training class, you might be just the person I am looking for.  Please contact my office for an application or go to www.lansingtownship.org and print an application and return it to the Clerk’s Office.  Election Inspectors currently earn $195.00 per election (open to close). 

   

Thank you for considering this opportunity.
