Absentee Counting Board

1 min read

Looking for a way to help on Election Day?

Oakland County Elections Division has established an Absent Voter Counting Board to help cities and townships tabulate their high numbers of absentee ballots. They are looking for about 100 individuals who would like to help!

Inspectors will be compensated: $30 for training, $250 for Election Day.

Mandatory Training on July 30th or 31st, lasting approximately 2 hours. Inspectors will work on August 4th from 6:15am until approximately 10pm. Lunch and Dinner will be provided. The counting board will take place at the Oakland Schools Conference Center in Waterford.

Cell phones and other electronic devices are not permitted, and inspectors will be sequestered on Election Day, meaning that they cannot leave until after the polls close.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided and must be worn while working. Workers will be screened (temperature and questions) upon entry and other safety measures will also be in place.

With so many people voting from home, this is a significant job, and we need your help to make sure it is a success!
