    Election Judges

    Do you meet the following requirements?
    • Eligible to vote in the State of Minnesota
    • Able to read, write, and speak English
    • At least 18 years of age
    • Not a candidate in the election, and not closely related to a candidate (Election Judges can not be a spouse, parent, child, or sibling of a candidate.)
    • Not closely related to an election judge in the same precinct (but can serve in another precinct)

    Do you want to:
    • Earn $9.00-$11.00 per hour?
    • Get involved in the election process?
    • Work with the public?
    • Do something different than the same old run-of-the-mill stuff?
    • Meet lots of people?


    If so, you can be an election judge!

    What does this involve?
    • A two-hour training class (generally held in August)
    • Commitment to the Primary election in August
    • Commitment to the General election in November
    • Judges must be at the polling place at 6:00 a.m. on election day and work until they are finished that evening (usually by 10:00 p.m.). We would prefer people who can commit to the entire day, but we will consider part-time (half-day) help as well.
    • If you are an election judge at a place that is not your polling place, you may vote absentee.
    • Regular judges are paid $9.00 per hour. Head or co-head judges are paid $11.00 per hour.
