DuPage County Clerk seeks more election judges

Stay informed with Shaw Local's Election Central. Research your ballot, where the candidates stand on the issues and set yourself up with a reminder to vote.

The DuPage County Clerk Election Division is in urgent need of 150 additional Republican election judges to serve for the 2020 primary election.

Currently there are 3,240 election judges – 2,009 Democrats and 1,231 Republicans – actively enrolled for the March primary, however, not all will serve on Election Day. Election judge placements will continue up until Election Day on March 17.

DuPage County has 268 polling places covering 930 precincts. The clerk’s office would prefer at least 10 election judges per polling place, but may only have seven or eight in some locations. Given the current number of actively enrolled Republican election judges, there will not be even coverage of both parties in the upcoming election.

The clerk’s office has reached out multiple times to both the Republican and Democratic organizations to recruit new election judges over the past year. This gives the opportunity for precinct committee persons to vet and select their preferences for election judges to represent their political parties. In addition, the clerk's office has attempted to recruit from the general public.

The shortage of Republican election judges is critical. It is extremely important to the clerk’s office to have both Republican and Democratic voters equally represented on Election Day.
