How do I become an Election Inspector?

There can be up to four elections each calendar year. During an election, each unit of government needs a staff of paid workers to work at the polls.

Election Inspectors are people who are paid to assist voters at the polls on Election Day. Anyone interested in serving as an Election Inspector for the City of Marshall must submit an Election Inspector Application (PDF).


  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Must be a registered voter of Calhoun County
  • Cannot be a challenger, candidate, member of a candidate's immediate family, or a member of the local Board of Canvassers.

After your application is accepted, you will need to attend an election training program. This is a one day training required to become certified as an Election Inspector.

The City of Marshall is currently looking for people interested in working as an Election Inspector. If interested, complete an application and return it to the: 

Clerk's office
323 W Michigan Avenue
Marshall, MI 49068.
