The Evanston GOP has 35 openings for Election Day judges in various locations throughout Evanston.

Election judges are appointed by party committeemen—you will be representing the Republican Party during your assignment. Pay includes four hours of training before Election Day.

To be eligible to serve as an election judge, you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen
  • A resident of Cook County
  • A registered voter
  • Able to speak, read and write English
  • Of good understanding and capable of performing duties

Candidates running for office and elected political party committeemen are prohibited from serving as election judges.

Judges work long hours, arriving at the polling place at 5 a.m. and working until the precinct votes are counted and transmitted after the polls close at 7 p.m.

Interested parties should email or call 847.491.9190 and leave a message with name, phone number, and home address, and email address as soon as possible.
