Not sure if being an Election Judge is right for you? Here are some other ways to help from the Minnesota GOP 

Click here to sign up to be a volunteer in any of the following roles:

Poll Challenger:

Poll challengers serve as appointees of the Republican Party of Minnesota and have the ability to make a challenge of voters when they have personal knowledge that someone is ineligible to vote.   

Observing Election Machine Testing:

Minnesota law allows the public to observe the testing of election equipment and software to ensure its accuracy. The timing of these tests is published in official newspapers for the voting jurisdiction and posted at local elections offices. We need volunteers to attend their local Public Accuracy Tests to ensure the equipment works as it is intended.

Driving Voters to the Polls:

Many of us have had a car break down or someone that was going to give us a ride fall through, and to some people that happens on Election Day. Every election there are Republican voters who are unable to vote because they don’t have a way to get to their polling place. We need volunteers throughout the state so we can make sure that we get every vote possible for our candidates.

Helping Voters Find Out Where to Vote:

With new election districts this year many polling places might be changing. We need people who would be willing to answer our MNGOP Election Hotline to help voters find where they are supposed to vote.

Meet With Your Local Elections Officials:

Elections in Minnesota are conducted by city and township employees as well as county auditors and elections departments. These are public employees who will often be happy to meet with you and talk to you about how elections are conducted in your area. We are happy to help you find out who your local elections officials are so you can set up a time to visit them.

Observe Election Counting:

The Chair of major political parties may appoint an individual to observe the processing of ballots at central counting locations after the polls have closed. This may be a good job for those that are not able to commit the whole day to be an election judge.

Serve on a Ballot Board:

Ballot boards are established to accept or reject absentee ballots. Republican election judges are needed for each one to ensure that ballots are accepted or rejected correctly according to state law.

Click here to sign up to be a volunteer in any of these roles. We will have a member of our team reach out to you to discuss how you can help.

Examination of Voting Software Source Code:

Minnesota law (Chapter 206, Section 206.57 Subdivision 6) allows a major political party to request an examination of the source code of voting software. The law requires the Party to pay for that cost. The cost is estimated to be over $2,000,000. If you would like to the Republican Party of Minnesota to request that evaluation, we need your help to raise the funds necessary to pay for it.
