City in Need of Election Judges

Are you interested in serving as an election judge, or do you know someone who is? Election judges are essential to a successful Election Day. They are the officials that staff local polling places, administer election procedures, and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Serving as an election judge provides an opportunity to learn about the elections process and is a great service to our community.
Although hundreds of people are already signed up to be election judges, Minneapolis is still in need of several hundredmore judges to staff up for Election Day. Election judges open and close the polls, register and sign in voters, distribute and collect ballots, operate voting equipment, and record and certify vote totals.
To be an election judge, you must be:
  • Eligible to vote in Minnesota.
  • Willing to attend a two-hour training class
  • Able to work either a full day (6 a.m. – 9 p.m.) or a part-time shift (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. or 2 p.m. – 9 p.m.) on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
