The City of Albertville is in need of election judges for the 2018 Primary and General Elections. Election judges are responsible for many aspects of the Election Day process including directing voters and maintaining order, signing voters in, registering voters, and instructing voters on how to mark their ballots, both on election day and the weeks leading up to Election Day.
Serving as an election judge is a great opportunity to learn about elections and also to serve the community. It is a paid position, including the two hours of required training, and employers are required to give employees time off of work if they wish to serve as an election judge.
Election judges must take an oath of service and can still vote either on Election Day or by absentee ballot. A variety of shifts are available to accommodate schedules. In addition to being a registered voter, election judges must be able to read, write, and speak English and also must declare a party affiliation. Election judges cannot be related to anyone on the ballot.
If you have questions, please contact the City Clerk’s office at 763.496.6801.
