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.
