How to be an election judge:
The qualifications necessary to be an election judge are:
- be a registered voter
- be of good repute and character
- be able to read and write the English language
- not a candidate for any office in the election
- not a precinct committeeman
At each polling place, there are judges from both major political parties. They are responsible for the administration of election procedures, and ensure that only qualified persons are permitted to vote. They also give assistance to voters, and demonstrate how to vote on the vote recorder. Election judges are nominated by the political parties. To become a judge, contact the chairman of your political party, the County Clerk, or precinct committeeman.
