Minneapolis needs Election Judges for the upcoming election on November 8. Election judges work in the 132 polling places located throughout the city, making sure every eligible ballot can be cast and counted. Minneapolis needs close to 2,000 election judges to make Election Day happen. Could you be one?
As of Aug. 1, election judges will be paid $13.30 an hour, and can work full or partial shifts. Depending upon your schedule and preferences, you can choose to work either the Primary, General Election, or both, at a polling place close to where you live or anywhere in the city.
If you are a returning election judge, please visit our new election worker portal to indicate you are interested in working again and to update your profile.
