Election Officials & Candidates
Election Inspectors - Becoming an Election Inspector
Citizen involvement is essential to conduct open, accurate, and fair elections in Wisconsin. The City of Middleton is always looking for dedicated residents who would like to work at the polls on election days. This is a paid position which can entail some very long hours, but is also very rewarding and interesting. The only qualification is that you are a "qualified" voter of the City of Middleton.
Your Rights as a Poll Official
Wisconsin law requires every employer to grant an unpaid leave of absence to each employee who is appointed to serve as an election official, if the employee who serves as an election official provides his or her employer with at least seven days' notice. The leave is for the entire 24-hour period of each Election Day in which the employee serves in his or her official capacity as an election inspector. Upon request of any employer municipal clerks must verify appointments.
