The City of West Allis encourages all citizens to vote and to become involved in the election process. One of the most rewarding ways to contribute is to serve your community as an Election Inspector, or Poll Worker.
Citizen involvement is essential in conducting open, accurate and fair elections. We hope that you will consider participating in the election process by signing up to be an election inspector. Generally, the City staffs the polling places with 125 election inspectors. For a Presidential Election, an additional 65 election inspectors are needed.
2020 election dates are:
- Feb. 18
- April 7
- Aug. 11
- Nov. 3
Election inspectors are compensated for working at the polling place and for attending training sessions. The current pay for Election Inspectors is $110.00 per Election Day. High school students are also encouraged to work as election inspectors. A student who is 16 or 17 years of age and who is enrolled in grades 9-12 in a public or private high school and has at least a 3.0 GPA may serve as an election inspector with the approval of the student's parent or guardian.
