Looking for a great way to get involved, meet new people, and earn some money—but don’t have a lot of time to devote? Become an election inspector!
Ferndale’s nine precincts and two absentee voter counting boards are staffed by precinct inspectors each election from 6:00 a.m. until polls close with additional election procedures completed at the end of the night. The more staff we have, the faster and smoother the process goes for everyone. Compensation is currently $13.00 per hour for precinct inspectors and $15.00 an hour for chairs.
If you’re interested in getting involved, we’d love to hear from you. Start by checking out the job description and the qualifications below, then complete the Precinct Inspector Application. Note: Michigan law requires that your application be filled out in your own handwriting. When complete, you can either drop off your application at City Hall or mail it to the Ferndale City Clerk's Office, 300 E. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale, MI 48220.
