Election Judge Information

Our free and open elections are a constant reminder of the endurance and vitality of our democracy. The service each of us contributes is a necessary part of the election process.


The Cole County Clerk's Office is in need of election judges to staff our 28 polling places for the elections held throughout the year. In order to serve, you must declare one of the two major political parties, and be a registered voter in Cole County.


The pay is $120 per day ($150 for Supervisors). In addition, you will be paid $15 for attending a training session per election. The workday begins at 5:15 a.m. and ends after the polls close at 7 p.m.
