Subject: Election Inspector positions filled for City Precincts: City Clerk grateful that so many stepped forward


From: Benjamin Marentette, City Clerk, tcclerk@traversecitymi.gov, 231-922-4480


Issued: October 2, 2020


At the end of August, the City Clerk’s Office called on our community for assistance in our precincts, and the response was overwhelming! Over 250 applications for poll workers came into our office and we would like to express our gratitude at the overwhelming positive response!


“It is incredibly amazing to see, once again, how supportive our community is, and how people step forward when a call for assistance is put out,” said City Clerk Benjamin Marentette. “We are very fortunate to have so many citizens who want to be a part of making democracy happen right here in Traverse City.”


The City has filled all of the positions available in all seven precincts and in the Absent Voter Counting Board, and maintains a list of backup inspectors that numbers well over 100. Applications are kept on file for future elections for those not selected for this November’s election.

“My staff and I are grateful for each applicant that reached out, and we are excited to welcome our new election team members,” said Marentette.
