What are Judges of Election?

Judges of election are the officials who are responsible for the conduct of the election in the precinct polling place. The judges of election are the backbone of the electoral process.  Their jobs are challenging, interesting and personally rewarding.

In each precinct, the judges share in responsibilities, duties and authorities that include:

  1. Opening the polling place and setting up voting equipment at 5 a.m. on Election Day;
  2. Conducting a fair, impartial and secure election in the precinct polling place, allowing voting from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. 
  3. Tabulating the vote totals for the precinct and transmitting the results to Election Central after the polls close at 7 p.m.
