What are student election judges?

Sixteen- and 17-year-old students can work as election judge trainees. It's a great way to learn about elections and voting and earn cash at the same time! You will be assigned the same duties as other judges, with the exception of tasks requiring party affiliation. You will need to attend and complete the same training as other judges. You cannot be asked to work past 10 p.m. 

Edina has for several years used students as election judges in their polling places. Student judges must be U.S. citizens; at least 16 years of age; serve in the county in which they reside; be enrolled in a Minnesota high school or be home schooled; be in good academic standing; and have written permission from their school and parents.
