Resources for Election judges Fluent in languages other than english

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.

Additional References for Election Judges

All election judges should be aware of and familiar with applicable Election Day rules and regulations, including laws pertaining to Election Day activities in general, authorized persons in the polling place, and restrictions on campaigning or lingering inside or within 100 ft of a polling place.
