Become An Election Judge

“Election Judges are the backbone of the electoral process. They are responsible for the administration of election procedures in the polling place on election day in accordance with the law.” — DuPage County Election Judges Flyer

Included among an Election Judge’s duties are:

  • Setting up polling locations the night before Election Day
  • Maintaining security of all election materials
  • Opening and closing the polls on time
  • Ensuring voters receive the correct ballot
  • Ensuring all votes are cast in secret

See the following links or more information on this critical role in safeguarding our democracy at the polls.
