SECTION 3-416
Election inspectors, poll clerks and election coordinators; removal
Election (ELN) CHAPTER 17, ARTICLE 3, TITLE 4
§ 3-416. Election inspectors, poll clerks and election coordinators;
removal. 1. Any election officer appointed pursuant to the provisions of
this chapter, may be removed for cause by the board making the
appointment. Unless such removal is for improper conduct, while such
officer is actually on duty on the day of registration or election, it
shall occur only after notice in writing to the officer to be removed.
Such notice shall set forth clearly the reasons for his removal.
Neglect to attend to the duties of the office shall be a cause for the
removal of any such officer.

2. It shall be the duty of the board making the appointment of an
election officer, to remove forthwith such officer without preferring
any charges and without notice to such officer, upon the written request
of the official of the political party who certified the name of such
election officer, or his successor. All such vacancies so created shall
be filled in the same manner as the original appointment was made. Any
election officer who shall at any time be appointed to fill a vacancy,
shall have that fact stated in his certificate of appointment and shall
hold office only during the unexpired term of his predecessor.

3. Any election inspector, poll clerk or election coordinator who is
removed from office for cause shall forfeit the compensation earned up
to the time of such removal.

4. An election inspector, poll clerk or election coordinator who is
removed for cause shall be ineligible to again serve in such capacity;
provided, however, that the board of elections may rehear the charges
against such person at any time and it may determine that such person
shall again be eligible for appointment if otherwise qualified.
