The people you see at the polling site are Election Inspectors. They are citizens from the community who have been trained to help protect the honesty of the election and to help voters on Election Day. Their job involves making certain that only registered voters who live in that district are allowed to vote. They are also there to answer any questions voters may have and to assist voters with disabilities, if they ask.
There are other people that you may not see who are also valuable to the Election Day process. These are the Voting Machine Technicians and Couriers. The technicians’ responsibilities involve assisting office staff with pre-election testing of all voting machines and Election Day service calls.
The couriers’ duties are to transport the results to the Board of Elections after the polls close at 9 pm.
