Election Judges Needed for November 2012 Election

August 22, 2012

Over the past few years, we’ve been working to keep the polls open and running by recruiting citizens to be impartial election judges.

You can serve as an election judge in the 32nd Ward in the NOVEMBER 6th Election by contacting 32nd Ward Dems organizer Stacey Pfingsten at 773 529 6454 – or call the Board of Elections at 312.269.7900.

Please note that the 32nd Ward Democrats  office located at 2160 N. Ashland will be closing in November and moving to a new location TBD.

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.
