Election judge pay and Income Tax Information

Checks for election judges serving in the Nov. 8 General Election were mailed on Friday, Dec. 9.

W-2's are not issued for election judges earning less than $600.00 within a year.
Please keep and refer to your paycheck stub(s) to complete your income taxes. The income is reportable and taxable if appropriate in each individual's tax circumstances. Consult your tax advisor with questions.

In the past a handful of City of Minneapolis election judges have needed these Federal and/or State Tax IDs of the City of Minneapolis to complete certain paperwork:

City of Minneapolis Federal Tax ID # 41-6005375
City of Minneapolis State of Minnesota Tax ID # 8023907

New Election Judge Website

Elections & Voter Services has a new website that allows election judges to update their personnel information, accept work assignments, and schedule your own training. To access the Election Worker Portal, unique login credentials will be sent to you by e-mail. When you log in for the first time, you will be asked to update your profile.

If you have questions or problems accessing the new website, call (612) 673-3870 or e-mail EJCoordinator@minneapolismn.gov.

Election Connection Newsletter

The most recent edition of the Elections & Voter Services newsletter, Election Connection, was published in April of 2016.
This newsletter is geared towards keeping our election judges up to date on activities going on with the Division. This issue highlights the Division's recent report to the City Council's Elections & Rules Committee regarding plans and preparations for the 2016 election, focusing in three areas: (1) increasing voter registration; (2) improving access to the ballot box; and (3) recruiting the right staff in the right places to support voters at every step of the process.
