Minneapolis needs election judges to work in every election in the city. 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?
Election judges are paid $15.75 per hour as of July 1, 2018, and can work full or partial shifts. Depending upon your schedule and preferences, you can choose which elections you work in, and whether you want to be at a polling place close to where you live or anywhere in the city.
If you are a returning election judge, please visit our election worker portal to indicate you are interested in working again and to update your profile.
For questions about serving as an election judge, call (612) 673-3870 or email EJCoordinator@minneapolismn.gov.
Fluency in Somali, Spanish, Hmong, Oromo, and/or American Sign Language is desired.
