Election Day Management Training Videos: Sealing Containers

One of the most important election inspector duties is properly sealing the ballot container and recording of the sealing at the end of the night.  If the container can be opened and/or if the seal number is not properly written down in the poll book and on the ballot container certificate, the integrity of the ballots inside that container is compromised and therefore not recountable.
