Earn Extra Income as a Will County Election Judge

Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry is urging interested individuals from both major political parties to sign up to become an Election Judge to work future elections.

The Will County Clerk’s Office is seeking new Election Judges from throughout Will County. There is a particularly pressing need for new Election Judges in the following townships: Channahon, DuPage, Frankfort, Homer, Joliet, Lockport, New Lenox, Troy, and Wheatland. Those interested in serving as Republican Election Judges in these areas are strongly encouraged to apply.

“Election Judges perform an important civic duty by ensuring that our elections are conducted properly at the polling places,” Staley Ferry said. “In addition to serving voters on Election Day, this can be an interesting and exciting way to earn extra money.” 

Election Judges are paid $150 for the day they are assigned to work at a polling place in addition to mileage reimbursement. The County Clerk’s Office strives to assign Election Judges to polling places in or near the precincts in which they live.

Election Judges are required to attend a 2-1/2 hour training class that is scheduled during a weekday morning or afternoon. Upon completion of training and an assignment, they can earn extra compensation by helping to pick up and drop off election supplies during the Consolidated Election.

Interested individuals can apply to be an Election Judge at The County Clerk’s staff will contact applicants to schedule a training class.

Applicants must live in Will County and be registered to vote in the next election. A high school senior with a 3.0/4.0 GPA also is eligible to apply. Students may be enrolled in a public or private school, a local community college or university, or a private secondary school.

The Will County Clerk’s Office strives to assign five Election Judges to serve each precinct. It requires roughly 1,550 Election Judges to properly staff a Will County Election. 

The ratio of Republican and Democratic Election Judges at each polling place is determined by the average party turnout in the three most recent Illinois governor's races. It’s imperative to have a balance of Republicans and Democrats at the polling place to assure the integrity of the election.
