How are the judges selected?

You can choose to volunteer or be paid. Wages vary by precinct. 

Who are election judges?

Election judges are responsible for the administration of election procedures in the polling place. Election judges open and close the polls on election day. They help voters who need assistance, ensure only qualified voters are permitted to vote and certify precinct election results. Sometimes election judges are hired to process absentee and/or mail ballots with the Absentee Ballot Board.

At least two election judges in each precinct must serve with a different major political party designation (except in school district and township elections not held in conjunction with a statewide election, and for student trainee election judges).  The remaining election judges in a precinct can serve without an affiliation to a major political party.
