The Village of Belgium Needs Poll Workers!
The Village is calling on residents willing to serve as poll workers for the November 3 election to provide additional needed staffing due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Anyone who is interested in working should contact the clerk's office immediately at 262-285-7931 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Wisconsin law also allows people to serve as election inspectors in other municipalities within their county. If you are willing to serve in a municipality outside of your own, let your clerk know and they can alert the county about your availability. You can also contact the county directly and can find contact information for county clerks here: https://elections.wi.gov/clerks/directory .

Poll workers conduct assigned duties at a polling site on Election Day. Duties can include issuing ballots to registered voters, monitoring the voting equipment, greeting voters and assisting with answering questions, directing voters to the voting area, sanitizing voting equipment, and managing lines outside Village Hall.
