Become an Election Judge!
Election judges are temporary, paid employees of local election officials trained to handle all aspects of voting at the polling place. Serving as an election judge is a chance to learn about elections, and is a great service to the community.
On Election Day, there can be as many as 30,000 election judges temporarily employed at polling places across Minnesota. You too can be an election judge—many towns and cities are always looking for qualified applicants. To apply to be an Election Judge in North Mankato please call 507-625-4141 and speak with City Clerk Van Genderen or complete the Election Judge Application.
