Serve Your Community – By Working as a St. Louis County Election Judge

Play a big part in the upcoming April 2nd St. Louis County General Municipal Election by becoming a St Louis County Election Judge! The St. Louis County Election Board needs to staff more than 200 polling places throughout the county, and you can help. 

Bi-partisan teams of Election Judges at each poll are vital to citizens exercising their right to vote. Election Judges are responsible for essential tasks such as setting up and operating voting equipment, managing the voting process by checking in voters, and securing ballots for collection at the Election Board. 

High school students are also needed to assist official Election Judges at the polls. Students shadow experienced judges through an innovative Student Election Judge program. Students will learn how the electoral process works and the importance of public service beginning at a young age. 

Election Judges can earn at least $250 for their service. Students can earn $170 or 16 community service hours that many schools require for graduation. 

Contact Jim McHugh of the St. Louis County Election Board to learn more about these programs and the opportunity to serve your community and nation. Call Jim at (314) 615-1858 or email him at
