Board of Elections Future Vote Program Seeks High School Juniors/Seniors to Serve as Paid Election Judges During 2016 Presidential Primary Election

The Montgomery County Board of Elections “Future Vote” Program is seeking high school juniors/seniors to serve as paid election judges at polling places for the Presidential Primary Election to be held on Tuesday, April 26, 2016.

In accordance with the Maryland Election Code, individuals serving as election judges must be registered to vote in the State of Maryland.  Students who will be 18 years old by or on November 8, 2016, are eligible to register and vote.  The Maryland Election law also allows minors who are 17 years old to register and be appointed to serve as an election judge if the minor demonstrates, to the satisfaction of the State Board, that he or she meets all qualifications for registration in the State.   Because of the population diversity within Montgomery County, students with bilingual language skills, particularly in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Amharic and French, are encouraged to participate. 

The application process requires both an online quiz and completion of hands-on training.  All applicants who are selected for these positions will be compensated at rates that vary based on the position, as advertised at  www.777vote.org.  Individuals may earn 25 Student Service Learning (SSL) credits in lieu of a stipend, if they prefer.

For more information please visit our website,  www.777vote.org , and select Election Judges to complete an on-line application.  You may also contact Gilberto Zelaya at  gilberto.zelaya@montgomerycountymd.gov , or 240-777-8532.
