The City of East Bethel is continually recruiting election judges to serve during the Primary and General Elections. An election judge serves on a team responsible for the administration of the election procedures on Election Day. These are paid positions. Each judge is required to attend a minimum of two hours of training, for which they are paid. Minnesota State Law allows time off from work without loss of wages to serve as an election judge, as long as you provide at least a 20-day notice to your employer. Students who are at least 16 years of age may also serve as student election judge trainees.
If you are interested, please complete an Election Judge Application/Information Update, and return it to the Elections Coordinator. You may also sign in on this website and complete the Election Judge Application online.
