Chapter 1 LEARNING ABOUT THE JOB,INTRODUCTION, When you go to the polls to vote on Election Day you may wonder about the people who are. working inside the polling place Five of these people comprise the Election Board Judge of. Election Majority Inspector Minority Inspector Clerk and Machine Inspector . All five members of the Election Board must reside in the election district or voting division. sometimes called precincts in which their polling place is located Based on size and population . all cities and counties in Pennsylvania are subdivided into election districts The City of. Philadelphia for example has 1 686 election districts i Each election district is supposed to have a. five member Election Board although many don t as we will explain That means as many as. 8 430 people are needed to work across Philadelphia on Election Day Filling all of these positions. is difficult , Three of the five members of the Election Board are elected The Judge of Election Majority. Inspector and Minority Inspector The people who currently hold these positions were last. elected in 2013 If they want to be reelected they have to run again in 2017 Anyone else who. meets the qualifications for these positions can also decide to run . Two of the five members of the Election Board are appointed The Clerk is appointed by the. Minority Inspector and the Machine Inspector is appointed by the County Board of Elections . Except where otherwise noted most of the information in this manual pertains to the elected. members of an Election Board ,RESPONSIBILITIES, All five members of an Election Board share a common goal to make sure the polls are operating.
properly and that everyone who is eligible to vote is able to do so They are required to be fair and. impartial in performing their duties irrespective of their party affiliation or personal biases . All Election Board members are expected to be inside a polling place throughout Election Day In. Pennsylvania the polls officially open at 7 AM and close when the last person in line at 8 PM has. voted However the day typically starts before 7 AM when the polls are being set up and ends. after 8 PM when the polls close and the votes cast on voting machines are tabulated . After they are sworn into office ii each Election Board member has a separate job to perform . The Judge of Electioniii has the ultimate responsibility for the conduct of a polling place and. the personnel working there He or she must take an oath to admit only those voters who. are properly registered and entitled to vote to prevent fraud deceit or abuse and to make. sure that all votes at the end of the day are accurately tabulated The Judge is also. responsible for opening and closing the polls and for all the paperwork required on. Election Day , The Majority and Minority Inspectorsiv are responsible for checking voters registration. documents and preparing certificates to authorize voters to cast their ballots They ensure. that the voting process is legal and administered fairly by verifying the signatures of voters. as they sign the poll book the big book on the table with the names of voters The. Inspectors are also responsible for checking to be sure the voting machine numbers are. accurate at the end of the day , The Clerkv is responsible for recording the order in which voters vote in a book separate. from the poll book and accurately recording the number of votes He or she is appointed. by the Minority Inspector in each election district vi. The Machine Inspectorvii is responsible for preparing the voting machines so that voters. may cast their ballots He or she is appointed by the County Board of Elections and must. take an oath to be in attendance throughout Election Day viii. All five members of the Election Board must take an oath that he or she has no direct or indirect. financial interest in the outcome of the election ix. TERMS OF OFFICE, The Judge of Election Majority Inspector and Minority Inspector serve for four year terms The. Clerk and Machine Inspector are appointed before each primary general or special election x. Any vacancies in the office of Judge of Election Majority Inspector or Minority Inspector that occur. more than five 5 days before an election are filled by appointment by the county s Court of. Common Pleas These appointees serve for the unexpired term of the person whose place they are. appointed to fill Any vacancies in those offices that occur within five days of an election may be. filled by appointment by the county Board of Elections xi These appointees serve only on the day of. the upcoming election After Election Day a county court will appoint a replacement to serve for. the unexpired term of the person who has vacated his or her position xii. Practically speaking vacant positions are not always filled by a court order but rather informally. by a committeepersonxiii or by a wardxiv leader in what are known as curbside elections because. they take place on Election Day at the polling place where the vacancy exists Positions filled by. curbside election are for that Election Day only and not for subsequent elections . QUALIFICATIONS,All elected members of an Election Board must . Be qualified registered voters in the election district in which they are elected or. appointed , Be at least 18 years old , Have resigned from any city county state or federal appointed or salaried positions for at.
least two months before their election or appointment This includes any municipal board . commission or trust in any city and also includes the court system The only exceptions are. district justices notaries public and people serving in the state militia . Not be a candidate for any office to be voted for at a primary or general election at which. he or she is serving except for as a member of an Election Board xv. Committeepeople who are individuals who are elected to help people within their election. districts are permitted to run for election to a position on an Election Board However if elected . they may not engage in any partisan political activities on Election Day even if those are activities. usually performed by committeepeople such as driving people to the polls or handing out. campaign literature ,PARTY AFFILIATION, Election Boards are intended to be bipartisan xvi Optimally the Judge of Election and Majority. Inspector are from one political party and the Minority Inspector and Clerk are from another. political party xvii The political balance is tilted 3 2 by the party affiliation of the Machine. Inspector appointed by the County Board of Elections . However an Election Board is not always politically balanced In Philadelphia for example most. election districts have many more Democrats than Republicans Sometimes there isn t even a. Republican Election Board candidate on the ballot . In other cases such as when there is a vacancy in the Judge of Election Majority Inspector or. Minority Inspector positions within five days of an election the appointment by the County Board. of Elections or a curbside election may tilt the political party make up of the Election Board for. that Election Day only , Usually a political party imbalance only causes a problem when someone on the Election Board. violates their obligation to be fair and impartial on Election Day . All newly elected or previously instructed and found qualified Judges of Election Majority. Inspectors Minority Inspectors and Machine Inspectors are required to be trained by the County. Board of Elections or someone appointed by that office on the use of the machines and their. duties xviii They will receive a small payment for attending the training session as well as a. certificate confirming that they are qualified to conduct the election . This requirement does not pertain to a Judge of Election Majority Inspector Minority Inspector or. Machine Inspector appointed to fill a vacancy that arises on the day before or on the day of an. election xix, Training is a one time obligation It is not mandatory for any subsequent elections xx However the. Committee of Seventy strongly recommends that all Election Board members attend a training. session at least once a year to learn any new procedures or changes to the laws governing. elections ,COMPENSATION, In addition to a small payment for attending a training session the County Board of Elections sets. the compensation for all five members of an Election Board who work on Election Day xxi Here is. the current compensation per day for members of a Philadelphia Election Board . Judge of Election 100, Majority Minority Inspectors 95.
Clerk Machine Inspector 95, According to the state Election Code a Judge of Election is also entitled to an additional 20 for. transmitting election returns and the ballot box which contains election materials xxii with the. Election Board member who transports those materials entitled to a minimum of 0 35 per. circular mile from the polling place to the county courthouse Only one person can collect this. payment xxiii In Philadelphia transmitting election returns is usually done by off duty police. The Internal Revenue Service does not require compensation or payments received by members of. the Election Board to be reported as income xxiv,FREEDOM FROM ARREST. Although we hope this section does not apply to you no elected . Philadelphia The organization played a major role in the adoption of civil service reforms and the passage of the 1919 and 1951 Home Rule Charters During the past ten years Seventy has transformed itself from being just an election watchdog to a bolder more comprehensive advocate for better government and politics due in no small
