Each election, the County Clerk's office must hire Election Judges to assist voters on Election Day.
Judge duties include:
- Greeting voters
- Checking in voters
- Registering new voters
- Making changes to existing voter records
- Handing out ballots
- Setting up and taking down polling location site
Per Wyoming State Statute 22-8-102, "Judges of election shall be registered electors and shall be physically, morally and mentally competent to perform their duties." Additionally, all judges are obligated to attend at least one training session.
When Judges Work
On Election Day, all judges are required to work from 6AM to approximately 9PM (depending on your Polling Location). From 6AM to 7PM, all judges help set up the polling site by starting machines, setting up tables, chairs and voting booths. Polls open to the public at 7AM and close at 7PM. Once the polls are closed, judges help pack everything up and get the results to the Clerk's Office. It is a long day and we appreciate all our judges do during this process!
Payments for Judges
In addition to serving your community, you will make some extra money! Election Judges are paid $185 for Election Day, $30 for a meal and $30 for training. Chief Election Judges are paid $210 for Election Day, $30 for a meal and $30 for training.
