Election Judges Needed
The primary and general elections are scheduled for August 14th and November 6th in 2018. The City will need election judges for both dates. If you would like to serve as an election judge, here are the criteria.
Judges must be residents of the City of Buffalo. Training is provided over an afternoon, evening or online. All judges, even those who have served in prior elections, are required to take this training. The training sessions are usually held in the summertime. A commitment to serve both of the dates of the primary and general election is important. The election statutes require that there be a balance of Democrats and Republicans for some tasks within precincts, so prospective judges must prepare to state what party they belong to when necessary.
Judges are paid $9.83 per hour and are provided meals and snacks on both election days. The City encourages that youth are involved and welcomes high school students to serve as election judges in training.
If you are interested in serving as a judge at the fall elections, please contact Jennifer Nash at Jennifer.Nash@ci.buffalo.mn.us or 684-5407 by May 30, 2018.
