Standby (Stby) election workers are those who complete training and have been selected to serve as on-call workers.  A limited number of standby positions are required for an election.  Standby judges complete all required training and are initially assigned to one of several regional sites for Election Day.  Election morning, standby judges are dispatched from a regional site to a polling precinct as a replacement. In the days prior to the election, a standby judge may be reassigned to a specific precinct to fill a vacancy.

Note: This position cannot be requested. Assignments are made by recruiters on an as needed basis.  In the event we are unable to contact you to serve, the training and Standby stipends will not be paid.  Failure to serve, when and where assigned, will result in forfeiture of stipends.


  • Willingness and transportation to travel to any precinct within the county
  • Serve as a replacement for a judge who is no longer available
  • Complete all required training
  • Sign and return a Standby Judge Agreement for the election (required for payment)
