- Commitment to the Primary election in August
- Commitment to the General election in November
- Judges must be at the polling place at 6:00 a.m. on election day and work until they are finished that evening (usually by 10:00 p.m.). We would prefer people who can commit to the entire day, but we will consider part-time (half-day) help as well.
