PIME CALL TO ACTION: Poll Challengers and Election Inspectors Wanted



By Morgan Ray, Michigan Election Integrity Director | January 10, 2024


Friend,


Michigan's election laws changed significantly under Proposal 2 of 2022. One of those changes added a minimum of nine days of early voting to Election Day. This change increased the need for poll workers and challengers at least nine-fold, and now, in-person early voting is upon us. It starts next month on February 27 with Michigan's Presidential Primary.


Election inspectors (also called poll workers) are paid workers. Poll challengers are unpaid volunteers, both inspectors and challengers play important roles.



Pure Integrity Michigan Elections (PIME) is renewing its participation in the statewide Election Protection team to make sure cities and towns across the Mitten State have an equal balance.


If you are interested in becoming an election inspector or poll challenger, fill out the form at: www.electionprotectionteam.com/MI. Once you sign up, you will be emailed with a list of poll challenger trainings.


All poll challengers must attend at least one training to be placed at a location in 2024.  To register, click on one of the Training Schedule links below. If you cannot attend one of these training sessions, more will be scheduled for February.
