Election Judges

To become a paid Election Judge you must be a registered voter in the State of Maryland. Democrat and Republican voters accepted first. If the total number of Democrat and Republican judges cannot be fulfilled, we will then consider Unaffiliated voters to meet our quota needed. You may call the Board of Elections for consideration.
