The City of Golden Valley is always looking for qualified voters to act as election judges. Election Judges earn $15.38 per hour. State law permits employees to take time off from work without loss of pay to serve as election judges.
At each polling place, election judges work together to ensure a fair and accessible election for all eligible voters in the city. Election judges open/close polling places, register new voters, explain voting procedures, and provide assistance as needed. Election judges may be asked to serve in the precinct where they live or elsewhere in the city.
To be an election judge, you:
must be eligible to vote in Minnesota
must be able to read, write, and speak English
cannot be a spouse, parent, child, or sibling of any election judge serving in the same precinct
cannot be a candidate or the spouse, parent, child, or sibling of any candidate on the ballot in that precinct
must attend required paid training, either virtually or in-person
must be available to work between the hours of 6 am to 10 pm on Election Day (actual end time depends on the workload at each polling site)
Contact the City Clerk at 763-593-8012 for any questions.
