FREDERICK, MD -- Frederick County’s Board of Elections is seeking individuals to serve as election judges at polling places on Primary Election Day, April 28, 2020, and General Election Day, November 3, 2020.

The Board is currently seeking more than 300 election judges. Training will be provided, and all judges are compensated at least $25 for the three-hour training, and a minimum of $175 for Election Day work. A small number of Chief Judges, who make additional money for both training and Election Day, are also needed. The Board needs judges throughout the county.
