News from the League of Women Voters, St. Cloud Area (LWVSCA)

Become an Election Judge!

Minnesotans are entering the General Election season with anticipation. We can rightly point to our civic engagement, voter turnout, election administration, and election day volunteers as models of democracy in action. Election Day volunteers at the polls are key contributors because they help ensure that in-person voting is an efficient, secure process.


The League of Women Voters encourages people to consider becoming election judges. Like other states, Minnesota is still seeking more election judges for the November 8, 2022, midterm election. Serving as an election judge is a valuable way to serve our communities and help ensure that all voices are heard at the ballot box. Minnesota Election Judges are trained to conduct a safe, fair polling place and to assist voters.


Check out our Voting page on this web site and hit the Secretary of State's website link to get more information about applying and training to become a judge. Once on the site, hit the Elections and Voting arrow, and at the bottom of that page click GET INVOLVED. 

The LWVSCA Voter Service Team is organizing candidate forums for select races covering the Minnesota legislature, local governments and school boards. We are assuming that in-person events will be feasible this year. Audience members will be invited to submit written questions, and each candidate has the opportunity to answer all questions.
