One of the
responsibilities of the St. Mary’s County Board of
Elections is the appointment of Election Judges to staff
the different polling locations in the county.
In this regard, Election Judges are being sought to work
on Election Day in the thirty six (36) precincts
throughout St Mary’s County Maryland for the April 26,
2016 and November 8, 2016 Gubernatorial Elections.
Election Judges operate the polling place and are a
very important part of the electoral process. Election
Judges are the only contact the Election Office has with
the general public during voting hours and are
responsible for administering the actual voting
procedures in each precinct. Without these individuals
it would be impossible to conduct an election.
All Election Judges must make sure that qualified voters
who are properly registered are able to cast their vote
in a trouble-free environment. They represent the entire
electoral process and may be the only person a voter has
contact with when exercising his or her right to vote.
Therefore, the Election Judge must be reliable,
courteous, able to follow procedures exactly, and above
all, possess good judgment.
