Be a part of democracy. Become an election judge today!

The St. Louis County Board of Elections is actively recruiting individuals to work as election judges for the April 5 county-wide General Municipal Election.

If you’d like to know what it’s like behind the scenes during election day or simply want to earn some cash while helping better your community, this is your chance.

The Board of Elections utilizes both election judges and student election judges to operate 200+ polling places throughout the county for every election.

Election Judges are 18 or older and are responsible for setting up and operating the voting equipment, arranging the polling place, checking in voters and troubleshooting any problems. Student election Judges must be between 15 and 17 years of age and in grades 10-12 with good academic standing. They are responsible for assisting with the checking in of voters, gathering line tracking data and keeping the polling places operating smoothly.

All judges are required to attend a training session and be available to work from 5 a.m. to the completion of duties on election day.

Election judges receive $175 for their duties while student election judges receive $125. If they so choose, 16 and 17-year-olds have the option to receive community service hours instead. Training is compensated at a variable rate depending on the role.

If you’re interested in applying to work as an election judge for the April 5 General Municipal Election, visit or call the St. Louis County Election Board at 314-615-1865.

Applications are due by Friday, March 11, and will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
