Student Election Judge Program

Student Election Judges can serve in polling places in the Nov. 7 Municipal Election. All Student Election Judges must complete Election Judge training, and can either be paid the same rate as other election judges or earn community service credit.

Students who are at least 18 and are eligible voters may serve as a regular election judge.

All students ages 16 or older who are in high school or alternative programs have an opportunity to serve as Student Election Judges. Student Election Judges must:

  • be citizens age 16 or older
  • be able to read, write, and speak English
  • be in good academic standing in high school or home school
  • have a permission slip (pdf) signed by a parent or guardian and their school
  • follow the steps on this application checklist (pdf)

If you have questions about the program, please contact the Student Election Judge Coordinator at SEJCoordinator@minneapolismn.gov.
