Elections & Voter Services has a new website that allows Election Judges to schedule their own training. Once you are assigned to work as an election judge, unique login credentials will be sent to you by e-mail to log into the Election Worker Portal.
Training for election judges is primarily held at the Elections Warehouse/Training Facility:
732A Harding St. NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413
This facility is located just east of I-35W, two blocks to the east of the of the intersection of Broadway St. NE and Stinson Blvd. See the map of the training location (pdf). The training site is marked with a red diamond ♦ on the maps.
Free parking is available on the street (Harding St. NE) or at the end of the block in a parking lot near the site. Do not park in spaces directly in front of the building (these are reserved for other nearby tenants/customers.) Do not park behind the building near the loading docks. See the warehouse parking guide/map (pdf).
Bus access is available via:
See MetroTransit for more information on bus routes or call 612-373-3333.
If you are serving as an election judge and are fluent in a language other than English, the team in your polling place will be counting on you to support voters in your polling place that have need for assistance in the language that you know.
Before Election Day, in addition to reviewing materials you've received in training, it's a good idea to check out our Language Support Page and read the documents that are translated into the language(s) that you know. This will give you an opportunity to practice with election terminology in each of those languages.
For additional assistance on Election Day, several reference sheets are available for election judge use in Minneapolis polling places. These serve as guides for judges while carrying out particular duties. These reference sheets include:
Ranked Choice Voting (RCV)
lets voters rank up
to three candidates
for each office.
It's as easy as 1-2-3!
