Who is eligible to be an Election Judge?
Any Minnesota resident eligible to vote who can read, write and speak English can be an election judge.

Minnesota Statute 204B.195 allows individuals to take time off from work, without penalty or reduction in pay*, to serve as election judges on election day(s). A 20-day written notice requesting to be absent from work for this purpose must be submitted to the employer.

*Without a reduction in pay' means you will earn what you would have at work that day. Generally, this means that your employer has the right to deduct the amount you made being an election judge from your normal day. You can voluntarily take a vacation day to be fully paid by your employer and receive the judge salary you earn as extra income. An employer cannot force you to take vacation or any other form of paid leave.
