SERVE AS AN ELECTION JUDGE ... The Douglas County Auditor-Treasurer encourages you to consider serving as an election judge this year during the August 9 Primary Election and/or the November 8 General Election.
Election Judges are paid officials who staff local polling places, oversee election procedures, and ensure the rights of voters are protected.
Minnesota needs a new generation of election judges to replace those who are retiring. There is also a great need for those ...fluent in languages other than English to assist our more diverse population of voters. Election judges receive training and have a right to time off work to serve, without a reduction in their pay.
You are encouraged to apply for this opportunity in civic engagement and community service. Learn more at the Douglas County Auditor-Treasurer's Office (320) 762-3077 or by contacting your local city/township clerk.
The Douglas County Auditor-Treasurer invites you to check out the newly improved website for the MN Secretary of State. We think you'll agree that it's easy to navigate and very informative regarding topics such as Elections & Voting, Business & Liens, Notary, Studying Abroad, Boards & Commissions, Safe at Home, and general information about Minnesota.
