Training Videos for Election Inspectors
Welcome to the Secretary
of State's newest offering, video training for election
inspectors. As the local clerks, administrators and officials on the
front lines of elections, we appreciate your hard work and dedication to
keep Michigan's elections running smoothly and securely.
These videos, created by
our Bureau of Elections with input from clerks from across Michigan, are
being offered to supplement your own important training for poll
workers. Individual segments can be used as short "refresher" courses to
reinforce key Election Day practices.
Topics range from
enforcement of Michigan's photo ID rules to the processing of
provisional and challenged ballots, important checks and balances at the
precinct on Election Day, and the proper way to seal and secure ballot
containers. We hope you find the new videos helpful and will share it
with fellow election administrators and poll workers.
Again, thank you for your
commitment to secure and fair elections. The work you do allows
Michiganians to exercise one of their fundamental freedoms - the right
to have their voice heard on Election Day.
