HOW TO BECOME AN ELECTION JUDGE

Election Judges are appointed biennially (Article 33, Section 10-203 of the Annotated Code of Maryland) thirteen weeks prior to any regularly scheduled primary election and serve until after the general election.  Therefore, each person accepting appointment as an Election Judge should be available for the primary and general election to be held in a given year.

Several different types of Election Judges work in a polling place because of the multiple responsibilities entailed:

  • Alternate Judge

    2.)  An Election Judge must be able to speak, read, and write the English language.

    3.)  An Election Judge may not be a candidate, a campaign manager for a candidate, or a 
          
treasurer for a candidate or political committee.

    4.)  An Election Judge must be physically able to work continuously throughout the entire
          day, 6:00 a.m. through approximately 9 p.m.  Must also be available for set up the night
          prior to Election Day and able to assist in lifting 30lbs.

    5.)  An Election Judge may not engage in partisan or political activity while on duty in a
