Election Judges & Student Opportunities
Albany County depends on good citizens who volunteer to work as election judges. On election days, each precinct needs from three to eight judges to work processing and assisting voters. Judges need to be registered voters and must be physically, morally and mentally competent to perform the duties. Judges must not attempt to influence voters or make comments about candidates or political parties.
All judges and members of counting boards are obligated to attend at least one training school for each election. Albany County pays $125 for working an election from 6 am to approximately 8 pm or whenever the precinct balances. There is an additional $20 payment for attending a training school.
If you are interested, please submit the form. Please include contact phone numbers and Election Judge in the subject line.
If you are a new jusge that has never served before, you will need to complete an I-9 found here and provide the appropriate form(s) of ID.
Whether participating in the Student Election Judge Program (PDF) or helping the County Clerk’s Office conduct the election, opportunities are available for students aged 16 to 18. At the polls, a Student Election Judge is an official who works side-by-side with adult Election Judges to ensure election integrity.
By participating in the program, you will be paid and may be eligible to earn school credit. This experience is a great resume builder. For a complete description of the Program and an application, please visit the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Website.
