Beyond the Vote – Become an Election Judge

Each election season the City needs nearly 400 people to serve as election judges at the primary and general elections. Judges must receive advance training and may serve on either or both election dates.

Election judges attend a two-hour training session in July or October. On Election Day, judges may work a half-day shift of about 8 hours or a full-day shift of about 16 hours.

To qualify to serve as an election judge you must be eligible to vote, and be able to read, write and speak the English language. In addition, you cannot be the spouse, parent, child or sibling of a candidate, or be a candidate in the election.

State Law allows election judges to be excused from work to serve as a judge without loss of pay. The employee must provide the employer with 20 days’ written notice. Election judges are compensated by the City for their service.

If you are interested in serving the community as an election judge, please contact City Clerk Christina Scipioni at

If you would like additional information, please call City Hall at (651) 675-5000.
