Training online for election workers

LANSING — Secretary of State Ruth Johnson has announced the first online training for Michigan poll workers.

Designed to promote consistency across polling places, the video training reinforces procedures that maintain integrity in the elections process and helps ensure ballot security. Johnson said the program was created with input from county and local clerks around the state and is intended to supplement local or regional training efforts.

The first phase of the Election Day Management online training can be viewed on the Secretary of State website,, or on the state's Bureau of Elections YouTube Channel.

Traverse City Clerk Benjamin Marentette has already used the new online training.

"In Traverse City, we are showing the election training videos from the Bureau of Elections during the training sessions we are holding with all of our polling place workers," Marentette said in a press release. "The videos drive some key points home and are a great tool."
