Elections


Election Judges

Election judges are paid officials that staff local polling places, administer election procedures, and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Serving as an election judge provides an opportunity to learn about the elections process and is a great service to our community.

Duties performed by an election judge include:

  • Setup of the polling site
  • Distribute and collect ballots
  • Register new voters
  • Help voters requiring assistance
  • Record and certify vote totals

If you are interested in becoming an election judge, please contact the City Clerk's Office at 218.299.5304 or Email the City Clerk.
