Election judges needed in Oakdale

Election judges are needed in Oakdale for the 2020 Primary on August 11 and the General Election on November 3.

Election judges and election judge trainees are paid officials who staff the polling locations and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Learn more and apply on the Washington County Election Judge Information site.

Judges receive training in a range of duties, including: greeting and registering voters, providing ballots, assisting voters as needed, overseeing ballot-counting machines, and compiling precinct voter statistics at the end of Election Day. Election Judges can be granted time off from work by law.

Potential judges must be eligible to vote in Minnesota; be able to read, write and speak English; and complete an online training session provided by local election officials. Training is approximately two hours in length.

High school students are encouraged to serve as paid election Judge Trainees. To be eligible, students must be 16 years old or older on or before Election Day, be a U.S. citizen; be in good academic standing at a Minnesota high school (or home schooled); and have permission from parents and school.
