Judges must be at the polling place at 6 a.m. on election day and work until they are finished that evening (usually by 10 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 $9.50 per hour. Head or co-head judges are paid $11.50 per hour.
