Machine Inspectors Needed!

  • Share on Facebook

With the 2017 General Election only months away, now is the time to register to be a Machine Inspector! The Office of the City Commissioners fills Machine Inspector vacancies when Judges of Election are unable to do so. Machine Inspectors open voting machines at the beginning of the day, set the machines for each voter, and close the machines at the end of the night. Individuals interested in filling these positions must be able to be on their feet for the entire day, must attend training, and be available to work on Election Day (November 7, 2017) from 6:15 AM until election materials are picked up from the polling place location some time after 8:00 PM. Appointed Machine Inspectors must be qualified electors of Philadelphia and meet the qualifications required of other election board officers. Each appointed Machine Inspector will receive a stipend of $125 ($95 for Election Day; $30 for training) per election.
