Judges of Election are responsible for the administration of election procedures in the polling place on election day. They are in the position of ensuring that the election process is administered fairly and in accordance with the law.
Election judges are chosen by the Precinct Committeemen and by that Party chairperson of their political party. In each precinct, the party which cast the highest average number of votes at the most recent three gubernatorial elections in the precinct shall be represented by three judges; the party which cast the second highest number of votes at the three most recent gubernatorial elections in the precinct shall be represented by two judges.
Election Judge workshops are held prior to each election. The workshops cover the duties and responsibilities of Election Judges. There is also an Election Judge test given at the workshops. Judges who have attended the class and completed the test will receive $135 for their duties on Election Day. Election Judge pay is reduced for not attending the workshop and completing the test.
