The City of Milwaukee Election Commission is looking for dependable people residing in Milwaukee County, to help as Election Inspectors at voting sites throughout the City for the General Election on November 6, 2018. Election work is non-partisan and provides a great way to more fully participate in the democratic process. Election Inspectors check-in registered voters, provide them with a ballot, register qualified individuals to vote who are new voters or who have name or address changes. These positions are paid ($130/full Election Day). You must attend one training which is also paid ($25). Fluent bilingual (English/ Spanish or English/Hmong) individuals are especially encouraged to apply. For an application and more information, visit or contact the Election Commission at or 414-286-3491.
