Updated: November 16, 2023
To: Wayne County Community
From: Ann F. Clark, Chair – Wayne County Republican Committee

Re: WCRC Voter Integrity Program Overview

As the new Chair of the Wayne County Republican Committee, I have started work on WCRC Election Integrity Projects for 2024 which includes:

Michigan Election Integrity State Director: is Morgan Ray, 248-70-9201 mray@gop.com. For Wayne County our contact will be Alex Richmond, Michigan Election Integrity Assistant, Republican National Committee 248-909-2708 or arichmond@gop.com.

Vetting Election Inspectors1: I will be meeting with Kate Riley who developed the very comprehensive Guidelines and Procedures for vetting election workers which was utilized in 2022.

Kate has agreed to continue collaboration and assist me with this project. She and I are in the process of creating the 2024 task list and timeline, so the program will be ready for implementation in 2024. Last year, the program included vetting the election inspectors in 39 of the 41 cities in Wayne County.

How to help with this program:

  1. If you were a volunteer who helped in 2022 and want to help again in 2024, please let me know.
  2. If you’re new to the vetting project and want to help, necessary skills include being comfortable with conducting searches on the internet and being able work in an Excel spreadsheet. Easy-to-follow written guidelines are available and in-person training will be provided for all individuals who are interested in participating. The process is simple, although it can be time consuming.
  3. We need to find locations with internet access to train the volunteers. Please let me know if you have suggestions.
  4. In addition to volunteers to work on the vetting process, we will need people to sign up as election inspectors and poll challengers. Some cities may need other types of help due to the recently changed election laws.

1 An individual hired by a clerk’s office to work an election is called an Election Inspector by the State of Michigan. Depending on the municipality, an election inspector may be referred to as a poll worker or election precinct inspector.
